Recipe by Ambrosia for Guen
This is the result of a pantry sweep for dinner. I based it on my mom's old "german fried potatoes" that I had as a kid. That recipe was basically potatoes and onions browned in a TON of butter on a skillet. Hopefully this is a little less fattening, although I Did go for a little bacon grease but only because I didn't have any bacon.
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tablespoon Earth Balance margarine
- 1 teaspoon bacon grease
- 1 large russet potato
- 1⁄2 small onion
- 1⁄4 cup dried split peas
- 4 slices sun-dried tomatoes
- 1⁄4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- 1⁄2 teaspoon rosemary
- 1⁄4 teaspoon garlic salt
