These potatoes are the best! We loved them! I've made them again since the first time! So many yummy flavors in one pan! I'd never fried red potatoes before, so I'm so glad I tried this recipe! Just delicious! These are just the best! Made for an event at KK, Go for the Green. Thanks, Gail!
Deliciously decadent! I used russet potatoes and omitted the salt. Thanks for sharing!
We used some smallish russet potatoes, which worked just fine; we did microwave them before they went in the skillet. I left out the celery by personal preference. This made a delicious Saturday breakfast for us; we all enjoyed it.
