Yum! I enjoyed the potatoes with the red and green onions, very nice. Had for breakfast and halved the recipe. Thanks! Made for the photo forum-On the Farm.

Very good, but I goofed on the veggies. I put the onions etc, in first and of course by the time the potatoes were cooked the veggies were runined. But the potatoes were wonderful, they bought back memories of childhood, my Mom made these often for us kids. Thanks for posting and I will do again and do the veggies at the proper time!!!
