Twice Fried Potatoes

"Ok, so the title may be a little deceiving. The potatoes are only fried once, but the ingredients are in the spirit of a twice baked potato. This plate can certainly stand alone, but goes great with everything from eggs to meatloaf and anything else you want to pair it with."

directions

  • After peeling and cutting the potato, place in a small or medium pot of cold water then bring the water to a boil. I like to use minced onion (the dried onions found in the spice aisle) in the water also. Boil until the potatoes are just tender enough to be pierced with a fork.
  • While the potatoes are boiling, place 1 Tbsp butter in a pan coating the bottom of the pan. Add the onions and saute until just translucent and tender.
  • Chop and cook (or cook then chop) the bacon. I would recommend not mixing the bacon and onion. When the bacon is done cooking, place on a paper towel to drain and set aside for now.
  • When the potatoes are tender, drain them, add remaining 3 Tbsp butter and potatoes to the pan with the onions. Cook until potatoes are slightly crunchy on the outside, but do not over-cook.
  • When potatoes have about 2 minutes remaining to cook, spread them out across the bottom of the pan and cover with cheese. Put lid on pan and allow cheese to melt.
  • Transfer potatoes to plate, topping with bacon and sour cream.
