Amazing! I've made this twice since i discovered them last Thursday. Ever since my Fiance, begs me to make them every night. I altered it just a little by leaving the skins on and adding a fresh garlic and allowing it to caramelize with the onions. Being college students this dish is wonderful since onions and potatoes are so cheap =)

Yummy! I did alter it a bit to cut back on the fat and calories. I used 1 T. butter and 1/2 T. olive oil and it was perfect! Thanks!

I adore making skillet potatoes with thin sliced onions and leftovers for work entice envious glances!
