Fast Country Fried Potatoes for One

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Busy Lindsay

This is a quick way to make country potatoes for yourself. Putting the potato in the microwave first cooks the potato before frying which makes it so quick.

Tripled the recipe since there are three of us. I followed the recipe as written but we thought they needed more seasoning. They were easy to make. Next time I think I would add onion flakes instead of powder or real onions. Made for Spring PAC 2010.
