This is my moms recipe that she uses, and now I make as well. It goes over well with the kids with ketchup, but I like them plain.


  1. Put the butter in a pan (I use a stick free, the butter is for taste) and melt.
  2. Add potatoes, and turn over every few minutes until brown. Not all need to be brown, but make sure they are cooked through. Usually takes about 15 minutes.
  3. Add salt and pepper sometime during frying time, to taste.

Hubby really enjoyed these. I made exactly as written and we all enjoyed them. I did cover mine with a lid when cooking. We all enjoyed them.

Thank you so very much for sharing your mom's recipe, now I can make perfect fried potatoes. Every once in awhile we are not that hungry but crave fried potatoes & the recipe is perfect. Thanks again!
