Fried Potatoes

August 11, 2012Teresa

Fried Potatoes are so mouthwatering. No one could make Fried Potatoes as well as my mom or grandma. I think it was because they used cast iron skillets and lard. Their fried potatoes were just fabulous. Mom always just sliced her potatoes and added salt and pepper. Grandma cooked hers on an old wood stove. Maybe having a little of the wood-smoke flavor made them taste so wonderful.

I cube my potatoes and add a few more seasonings. I stopped using lard to cook things in when I got married. My husband was used to stuff being cooked with butter. He also didn’t care for the taste. (Although I love foods cooked in bacon or sausage grease!) This dish can easily be made vegan by using olive oil or avocado oil instead of butter. It’s a quick and easy side dish, but we actually prefer this dish for breakfast. It’s great with a Breakfast Casserole or Sausage Gravy over Biscuits.

I first posted this recipe in August 2012. I’ve made this several times since then, but I’ve freshened up the pictures with some shots I took in December 2013.  I mix and match the seasonings for this recipe almost every time I make it. Sometimes I use all of the seasonings listed, and other times I use only part of those seasonings.

In this batch I’ve added yellow bell pepper, sometimes I add sliced leeks. It all depends on what I have on hand and what flavors I’m in the mood to eat on a particular day! No matter what seasonings you decide to use, these potatoes come out wonderfully every time!

The wonderful thing about this recipe is you don’t have to be locked into certain seasonings or veggies each time. Sometimes I use bell pepper, sometimes I leave it off. I change out the seasonings depending on my mood and add what I like!

Here’s what I did.

Heat a large skillet to medium heat. Add a half stick of butter and melt. Add potatoes, diced yellow bell pepper and green onions. 

If you want to keep the dish vegan, substitute avocado oil for the butter in the recipe.

Add seasonings.

Sometimes I season the potatoes with parsley, pepper, paprika, garlic salt, dill weed, and rosemary. (I use chives if I don’t have green onions). Here I’ve seasoned them with salt, pepper and parsley.

Cover with lid and saute potatoes over medium heat about 25-30 minutes. Stir and turn potatoes over with spatula every 5 minutes to prevent burning. Recover with lid each time.
