    Sheri-BDB's Note:

    This is your basic fried potatoes and onions. Just the way my grandma use to make when I was growing up.

      Made these last night and reminded me of my mom making them when we were growing up. I used canola oil to fry in and they were still delicious. Thanks for the recipe!

      I've been making potatoes like this for years-it's a southern thing. They are excellent and the only thing I do different is when they're done, I put cream cheese on top and melt. YUM YUM

      It was pointed out to me that I had posted my review of your recipe on another recipe. Here is the review I posted. I liked fried potatoes and I thought I would this a try. The onions added a nice flavor addition. I added a little butter along with the shortening. Will have to make my fried potatoes with onions more often. Thanks Sheri-BDB Bullwinkle
