Country Style Fried Skillet Potatoes

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

If possible use a cast-iron skillet for this but any skillet will do, also use only shortening for this. Cooking time is only estimated depending on the size you cut the potatoes, adjust all seasonings to taste. Make certain that you the cooked cubed potatoes are cold before using in this recipe!

I was in a hurry to make breakfast for 9 people. I didn't read that the potatoes had to be cooked. I also love onions so I modified this recipe a bit. In a cast iron skillet I heated up some oil and dropped in 1 whole onion finely chopped. While the onion was cooking on med-low heat, I cubed about 8 med potatoes, added seasoned salt, paprika, black pepper, garlic powder and about 1 tablespoon oil which helps spices coat and stick to the potatoes. Then I dropped the potatoes into the sautéing onions turned up the heat to med-high and let them cook uncovered, stirring occasionally until tender. I opted to chop 2 small sweet peppers for color and flavor. They paired well with scrambled eggs and polish sausage (or breakfast sausage can be substituted, country gravy with sausage or bacon or ham as well). All I can say is the pot was scraped clean. Thanks for the recipe. I will try it with cooked potatoes next time around.
