    Chef1MOM-Connie's Note:

    We make breakfast for our Saturday staff and students and I was requested to make a large batch of Greek home fries. In a hurry after work on Friday, I decided to experiment. These are now the Saturday potatoes side for the breakfasts at school. I also have to make additional amounts as DH and DS said "not fair" if we do not get any. LOL Enjoy! I reduced amounts for a family of 4-6 not the 30 I need to make for Saturdays. adjust seasonings to taste.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Wash and pierce potatoes and microwave 10 min (varies depending n power of microwave) until you can push a dent in to potatoes.
    2. 2
      Let cool.
    3. 3
      Slice in quarters then slice into 1/2 inch pieces.
    4. 4
      In the meantime add oil, garlic, pepper, oregano and diced onions in a large fry pan (big enough to hold potatoes).
    5. 5
      Sauté until just cooked, when onions turn translucent (about 3 minutes).
    6. 6
      Once potatoes are cut, add to fry pan, add butter and basil and cook over medium heat, stirring so potatoes can pick up all the juices and flavors.
    7. 7
      Turn to low, cover and let cook for an additional 10 minutes (approx) until potatoes get the crispy brown edges. mmmmm.
    8. 8
      Add lemon juice and mix.
    9. 9
    10. 10
      Note: times are approximately depending on microwave and stove type. I have propane so it cooks hot.
    11. 11
      ** Add in more or less spices to your liking. I need to adjust for students. With my family, I add in more garlic and lemon and no salt.
    12. 12
      ***Prep and cook times overlap- this is on the table at my home in less than 30 minutes start to finish.

      Oh wow, what a fantastic potato dish. I made it for one -- for lunch today -- and it was perfect! I used one potato, 1/2 of a small onion, 1 tablespoon fresh basil, 1 clove of garlic, the juice of half a lemon and 1/4 of the other ingredients. This is so easy to make. Thanks so much for posting your experiment.
