Brit's Cheesy Onion Home Fries

Recipe by Karen..
READY IN: 35mins




  • Microwave potatoes as you would for a baked potato, but cook until*slightly* underdone- 4 take 12-14 minutes on my microwave (or use leftover baked/cooked potatoes).
  • When cool enough to handle, quarter potatoes and then cut into about 1 inch pieces (we leave the skins on).
  • Heat 2 tbl of butter or oil in a large non-stick skillet (or if you just cooked bacon in the pan, you can reserve some of the bacon grease and use that to fry in).
  • On medium heat, add onions and cook until 1 or 2 minutes before adding potatoes, salt and pepper, stirring to combine.
  • Let cook for a few minutes, flipping or stirring gently, until onions are tender and potatoes are to desired crispness.
  • If necessary, add additional butter or oil to prevent sticking.
  • Remove home fries from pan and transfer into microwavable casserole dish.
  • Sprinkle with one cup of cheese and fold in gently.
  • Sprinkle remaining cup of cheese on top and microwave for 1 to 2 minutes until cheese is melted.
  • Sprinkle a bit of parsley on top, if desired.
