This is so good. My grandmother was from Ireland and she used to make this dish all the time. When I make it, it always reminds me of her. I hope you enjoy it :)

These were good and easy to make. I followed the recipe as written other then I used season salt instead of regular salt. We all enjoyed them.

What a delightful treat! I scaled it down to serve 1 and really enjoyed this method of frying potatoes and onions. I used leftover red potatoes that were boiled with the skin on. I'll be making my fried potatoes this way from now on. Thanks for sharing! Made for Spring PAC 2012.
