I rarely fry potatoes anymore, but am so glad I tried these. I liked that the oil in this recipe just covers the pan. I microwaved the potatoes to speed things along and also left the peels on. The purple onion & garlic flavors came thru and I might even add more garlic next time. Crispy flavored potatoes were a treat! Made for the German Tag Game.
