Mike's Potatoes

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Leslie in Texas

This is from the Lake Forest Cafe in Folsom, California. It's great for a brunch, served with fried eggs, omlets or hamburgers. Originally from a June 1984 issue of Bon Apetit in the R.S.V.P. Letters to the Editor section.

I clipped this recipe from Bon Appetit years ago and have been making it and enjoying it ever since! It's a great side with burgers! I've used cubed frozen hash browns in a pinch, but cooking the potatoes yourself is really best.
