READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Justmez2

My mom made this dish which helped stretch our meals, and was a good filler for the men folks. There will probably be a fight over who can get the most crispiest potatoes!

These are very good as is but if you added onions in while cooking it could easily be a 5 star.
