Making great country-style potatoes has always eluded me. Still, I plugged on, thinking one day I'd find the recipe that would work for me. THIS one is "it"; the potatoes turned out magnificent and we were fighting over the last scraps from the pan. I think the two secrets are the addition of water and using the seasoned salt. I had no Lawry's on hand so I used this recipe to make it: Mrs. Knudson's Season Salt . Thanks SO much for sharing this recipe; it will be our classic breakfast potato recipe from now on!!!

These potatoes are good for any meal not just breakfast! I've used this recipe for years and use russet potatoes as I don't keep the red ones on hand. Sometimes I add a little bacon grease when frying. Yum! Seems like I got my original recipe from a recipe book featuring country singers. Thanks for sharing.

These turned out really well. Crispy and the water at end make them tender.
