    I know this is not a healthy recipe. Lard is, indeed, a four letter word these days. However, we enjoy this occasionally. It is very good! Prep time includes soaking time for the potato slices. This recipe is originally from McCalls.

      This is an old family favorite recipe!!! I've been eating this since forever, and it is fantastic!!!The only difference is that we always add thinly sliced onions to the pan...they caramelize and add a delicious sweetness to the potatoes. I've been eating these potatoes for over 30 years, so that alone makes this a 5 star recipe! But the taste, especially with the onions, makes this a 10 star keeper--I hope others enjoy this recipe as well!! Teresa
