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

These were good and easy to make. I followed the recipe as written and we enjoyed them.

  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.
