ONION ONION™ Fried Potatoes

Potatoes – skin on, cubed
Olive Oil
ONION ONION™ (Tastefully Simple)
Garlic Powder – easiest way to add garlic

I deliberately did not put measurements as you can fix enough for two or eight people. On medium heat, add enough olive oil to cover bottom of skillet. Add about half as much butter until melted, then add cubed potatoes. Cover and cook until potatoes are starting to get tender – 10-15 minutes. Uncover. Add spices to taste. Stir. Turn the heat up to brown the potatoes, letting them get nice and crispy before turning. Salt and pepper before serving.

If you want a quicker way to fix these in the morning, bake potatoes with skin on ahead of time and keep in fridge. When ready to fix, cube potatoes and you'll only have to heat for 3-4 minutes. Also - if you don't have the ONION ONION™, you can always use the real thing. It's just faster and very tasty to use the mix.

If you want, you can add chopped onion, green peppers, and mushrooms as you cook. Toppings could include shredded sharp cheddar cheese, bacon bits, and green onions. I used to have an iron skillet. If you have one, be sure to use it for wonderful brown crusty potatoes.
