Great with eggs over easy and a nice slice of ham, some bacon or fried sausage. Sure does bring back memories for me!

You did it again! You posted yet another fantastic recipe I will now be adding to my master recipe collection! We LOVED these potatoes. Made them exactly as written. My DH's mother used to make these for him growing up so it brought back good memories of her wonderful meals. I cooked the potatoes a little longer to make them more on the crispy side. YUMMY! The seasonings listed are good amounts. If your sensitive to salt it's probably perfect. If you like more you can always add as everyone's different with the salt issue. I expected the butter to burn before the potatoes were done but somehow it didn't and all cooked up perfectly. Thanks again Uncle Bill!

Well, Uncle Bill, here's your eighty-first review! Loved the sound of these and they were so easy to make. I used only 3 and a quarter tablespoons of butter as I first panfried 2 rashers of bacon, which I removed from the pan and kept warm while the potatoes and onions cooked. When I turned the potatoes and onions I added three cloves of minced garlic rather than garlic powder, only a pinch of salt (because I'd included the bacon) and freshly ground black pepper. I also added the bacon which I'd crumbled and some fresh thyme to the pan at this point. These potatoes looked great and tasted even better. We thoroughly enjoyed them with breezermom's Chicken & Mushrooms With Creamy Dijon Sauce. Thank you so much for sharing this super recipe, which I'll certainly be making again. Depending on what I'm serving with these potatoes, I might squeeze some lemon juice over them on another occasion.

So good...just like Mom used to make! I reduced this to 1 serving, used Smart Balance in place of butter and a red potato. It's my new comfort food. Thanks Uncle Bill!

Back in 1954, while I was on K.P. duty at Fort Riley Kansas, the Mess Sgt. had the cooks fry "Taters" just like this. I have fried them like this ever since! They are awesome with ham hocks and beans! Recipes like this will never be replaced! Thanks Uncle Bill!

Very simple, easy, and delicious. I added a little extra salt and garlic, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Next time I'll cut back a little on the onions and add mushrooms. Thanks for sharing.

These are DELICIOUS!! I remember my grandmother (no longer with us) making these, and my mother still does!! We always just used salt and pepper, I like the addition of the garlic powder!
