"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."
Serving Size: 1 (428 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 4
"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)"
"Oh, how this takes me home! There is a place in SW MO called Silver Dollar City where they make potatoes very similar to this out in open air stands in huge cast iron skillets (they add sweet potatoes to theirs). And being 5,000 miles away from those lovely potatoes, I needed this recipe! So thanks, Uncle Bill, for my trip home :)"
"This was absolutely divine! I made mine into a turkey hash. I fried a pound of ground turkey first and then set it aside. Then I made the potatoes and onions exactly as written (except I used 5 potatoes) and added the turkey back in with step #5. Everything was caramelized and seasoned to perfection!! This also fit wonderfully into my DH's new low sodium diet that he has to be on now. Made with 1/4 t sea salt, the turkey, and even the butter listed, it came to only 135 mg sodium per cup of hash. Very low!! My whole entire family LOVED it and begged me to put it in our rotation. This is quite a feat considering we have 4 boys ranging from toddler to teenager!"
"These were VERY VERY good! Next time I'll use a cast iron skillet and put it on the grill. Thanks for posting!"
"Thanks Uncle Bill for an easy recipe! I didn't use any seasoning except salt and pepper. Butter was a great addition I didn't think about. This one is a keeper! I may add your other seasonings just to change it up. :D"
"These were good, but greasy. You can cut back on the amount of oil and/or butter a couple of tablespoons."
"I madea few changes due to what I had on hand, so used canola oil, no onions, and used leftover russet baked potatoes which I skinned and sliced. Such flavorful potatoes, and the best part was my hubby loved them!"
"Uncle Bill,<br/>Another amazing recipe! I would have never thought to use butter--so tasty! And, the dill was great! So yummy!"
"Oh, uncle, bill; thanks so much for sharing, came across this recipe, & it brought me back home.....(the good old days, good simple hearty food and some great memories ! ! ! Thanks, again, p.S. my sliced potatoes are just waiting to hit the hot pan for tonight's' supper. If, and I mean if there ever were any extra's left we would also be just as happy to put a layer of these great potatoes between 2 slices of white bread (maybe a little ketchup on 1/2), a meal in itself....."
"I was scared there would not be enough seasoning but these tasted great! I used red potatoes. I also took Angie's advice and friend them first without the lid. I'll definitely make these again!"
"I just made these this morning...wonderful!! I'm quite simple so I only used sea salt and black pepper as seasoning."
"We've done a similar recipe in our family for years.. as a staple. Except we add the garlic in earlier and also add about a 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes. For a bit of kick."
"Potatoes like this have been a fave for years at our house. Quick simple meal all you need to do is stir in a can of roast beef and gravy to your potatoes and its an awesome main dish! LOVE< LOVE< LOVE!!!"
"I nix the dill and garlic, I don't think you really need it. The best homemade fried potatoes! As another reviewer stated they have made fried potatoes an art form in southern MO and this is about as close as it gets to those...de-ee-licious!! I serve them with baked pork chops and southern-style green beans. Good stick to the ribs home cookin'!!! Thank you Uncle Billy!!! Sallll-lute!"
"Down home cooking! Reminded me of my grandmother. We all enjoyed this very much. Thanks for sharing!"
"Beautiful!!! Well, not entirely I was a little heavy handed turning my potatoes so they fell apart too much to post a nice looking photo! But I'll work on that...the addition of the dill weed, I wasn't sure would work, but that made it even more delicious than I expected...Also I love the different photo presentations.Great ideas for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. 10 stars! Thank you for sharing!"
"Can't go wrong with this recipe! Yummy!! The only thing I did differently was to omit the dill. We loved the flavor and crispyness of these potatoes and onions. Note: I sliced my onions thin but they tended to burn. Next time I will slice the onions thicker. Thanks!"
"These were amazing. I would love to cut down on the fat next time, but my goodness they were delicious!!!"
"Loved these! Perfect recipe for fried potatoes!"
"this is a great recipe! just like both of my grandmothers used to make. thanks for sharing!"
