Recipe by William (Uncle Bill) Anatooskin
I remember my Grandmother making this marvelous dish over 65 years ago. We were the only vegetarians in our family and therefore Grandma cooked just to please me. A very easy, simple but tasty side dish. Young potatoes are especially good.

To get your potatoes browner, fry them until golden brown with the lid off first, then put the lid on to finish cooking. Also, make sure your oil or oil / butter mixture is screaming hot to get a nice browning head start. I've been making these for 25+ years and never thought of garlic... what a wonderful add in! We put cubed velveta and a little milk in ours then let it melt with the lid on. Makes wonderful cheesy taders :0)
- 4 large russet potatoes or 4 large yukon gold potatoes
- 1 large onion, sliced thin
- 4 tablespoons butter (or more if required)
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon granulated garlic powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried dill weed
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper
- Peel and slice potatoes about 1/8 inch thick or thinner.
- Slice onion thinly.
- In a large frying pan on medium-high heat, melt butter, add olive oil.
- Add sliced potatoes and onions, cover and fry for 10 minutes. Using a spatula, turn the potatoes and onions over so they do not break apart. If potatoes appear too dry, add some additional butter.
- Sprinkle with granulated garlic powder, dried dill weed, salt and pepper and continue to fry with cover removed for another 5 minutes or until potatoes begin to turn slightly brown; turning occasionally.
- Serve hot with your meal.
- Note: You may use 2 or 3 large garlic cloves (chopped small), instead of granulated garlic powder. Add to the potatoes after the first 10 minutes of cooking time.
