Uncle Bill's Fried Potatoes and Onions

Uncle Bill's Fried Potatoes and Onions created by May I Have That Rec

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.

ingredients

directions

  • Peel and slice potatoes about 1/8 inch thick or thinner.
  • Slice onion thinly.
  • In a large frying pan on medium-high heat, melt butter, add olive oil.
  • Add sliced potatoes and onions, cover and fry for 10 minutes. Using a spatula, turn the potatoes and onions over so they do not break apart. If potatoes appear too dry, add some additional butter.
  • Sprinkle with granulated garlic powder, dried dill weed, salt and pepper and continue to fry with cover removed for another 5 minutes or until potatoes begin to turn slightly brown; turning occasionally.
  • Serve hot with your meal.
  • Note: You may use 2 or 3 large garlic cloves (chopped small), instead of granulated garlic powder. Add to the potatoes after the first 10 minutes of cooking time.

    Hey Uncle Bill! The recipe was great even though during the prep process I nearly severed my pinky finger clean off! Despite the 4 hours in the ER I came home determined to finish the task at hand and ill be surely making this recipe again. Hopefully next time minus the ER visit! :D

    I just made these for breakfast and they were delicious! I've always been a bit confused about fried potatoes. Some recipes say to cook the onions first; some say to cook the potatoes first. I picked this one because everything starts off together. I had a half can of diced potatoes that I wanted to get used. So I sliced a bit of onion, put half butter and half olive oil in a pan and threw them all in. I don't know if my stove is hotter than most but they were starting to scorch at 8 minutes so I reduced the heat from medium high to medium and flipped them over. Seasoned them with garlic powder, salt and pepper and cooked 2 - 3 more minutes and they were done. Thanks for a quick, EZ and delicious recipe!
