Who doesn't love fried taters and onions? Delicious and loved the added zing from the citrus and paprika!! I made this as written with just a couple of slight changes, I peeled and sliced the taters and then used part olive oil and butter, but otherwise, made a written. We enjoyed them with grilled bacon wrapped chicken and salad, so good!! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for your win in the football pool game, congrats!!
