Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

To me, potatoes are a food group to me. I could tell you some stories about white potatoes from my youth. They are not the healthiest food choice but they are filling. I have to try this recipe. It is prepared a little different than when I prepare skillet potatoes.

So the trick to perfect fried skillet potatoes must be the boiling of them prior to frying. I love potatoes and I can eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner but I don't. This recipe could easily be served for any of those meals. I love the addition of the onions.
