An easy "fried like" potato recipe that's easy to assemble and doesn't soak up loads of cooking oil. Reminds me of old-style fried potatoes and onions. If you like cheddar cheese, shredded cheese may be added to the layering process. This will get a little crisp around the edges. If you don't care for crispy, cut back on cooking time checking with a fork to see if paotatoes are tender.
