Beer Cheese Fried Potatoes

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by msjill111

When my cousin, Claudia, visits from Arizona I HAVE to make these for her. The addition of beer in them makes them extra creamy and soft on the inside.I know it's not a lot of beer and I've been known to drink the rest of the bottle just so it doesn't go to waste-makes for a nice nap after breakfast LOL. I love these potatoes and always cook two eggs, over medium, and put right on top of the potatoes and mix it all together. YUM!! I aslo add cream cheese to my baked potatoes as well and it's just as good. Hope you enjoy these as much as we do.

I like cream cheese on baked potatoes, too, so I had to try this! It's different, and makes a nice change from ordinary potatoes. Thanks for posting! Made for Spring 2010 PAC.
