Recipe by Seasoned Cook

A tasty side dish! Every year at my church's annual fish fry these potatoes are included on the menu. Everyone looks forward to this treat! Great with pork chops! Very easy to prepare. Cut potatoes into thick round "wheels".

These are awesome! Tried it for a snack today, just used 1 sweet potato,but instead of using salt, I drained them on a paper towel, and dipped them on both sides in a small bowl of cinnamon sugar. I'm making a pork loin roast in my crock pot for dinner tonight and will definitely be making these for a side to go with it.
