LOVE these...reminds me of my mom. She use to make fried potatoes. To keep them healthy, I used a couple of tablespoons of canola oil to brown them and then transferred them to the oven to finish.

I have to admit that the recipe name threw me but when I came in here I found a great fried potato recipe. We put the sliced onion in with the potatoes so that they aren't crunchy but kind of carmelized. This was my Dad's favorite recipe when I was growing up. Made exactly like this.

I always thought RAW meant uncooked, or a more natural state!
