Official Contest Entry: Simply Potatoes 5Fix. I made this one morning camping, I usually make fried potatoes & eggs for everyone, but now I use Simply Potatoes, So much easier Plus you can use the different brands they sell. my favorite is southwest style. no chopping Onions, red, & green bell peppers up :-) I use hot sausage links cooked and browned ahead of time. usually the day before, I slice them like a 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick and save in fridge for the morning.

I liked it, and it was easy although high in fat. I used regular potatoes and prepared them quickly, peeling onto news paper, and soaking in pan of water till ready. I tried Simply Potatoes a couple times when they were on sale. While pouring them out, I saw that the potatoes were spoiled in spots and cleaned poorly, to say the least. I had to cut and clean anyway. Even though I didn't pay a lot, I did expect them to be easier to prepare than peeling. I have passed this on to the company, also.
