    Amazing! I've made this twice since i discovered them last Thursday. Ever since my Fiance, begs me to make them every night. I altered it just a little by leaving the skins on and adding a fresh garlic and allowing it to caramelize with the onions. Being college students this dish is wonderful since onions and potatoes are so cheap =)

    Yummy! I did alter it a bit to cut back on the fat and calories. I used 1 T. butter and 1/2 T. olive oil and it was perfect! Thanks!

    I adore making skillet potatoes with thin sliced onions and leftovers for work entice envious glances!

    I know this recipe was intended for already cooked potatoes and I have done that many times over. This time, I didn't have leftover potatoes so I sliced a couple of red skinned potatoes,placed them in a pan and covered them with water, allowed them to cook until fork tender and then proceeded with the remainder of the recipe. Just before serving, the potatoes were lightly sprinkled with snipped chives.
