The way my mom always made 'em. I serve these with smoked sausage or kielbasa. These are NOT hash browns, and will not be crispy

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a skillet, melt bacon fat.
  2. Add onions and saute 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add potatoes, salt, and paprika (there should be enough to make potatoes almost orange).
  4. Fry, covered, over medium heat until soft and tender.
  5. If it starts sticking and forming a crust on the bottom, turn the heat down and add a little water.

AMAZING! I can't believe that I've never made these before! I added a little bit of garlic powder also like another reviewer, and they turned out great!!!!

Yum! Easy and good. I let these brown a little more since I like the crunch on the outside of the potatoes. Thanks papergoddess for a nice treat. Made for Cookbook Tag.
