Not-So-Healthy Fried Potatoes
source: Chris and Jenni
These Not So Healthy Fried Potatoes are delicious, but if you want to live past forty, make them only an occasional treat!
1/4 cup olive oil (more if needed)
2 tablespoons butter
3 medium potatoes, chopped but not peeled
1 onion, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
In your largest frying pan, heat olive oil and butter over a high flame. When very hot, add onions and potatoes.
Allow to cook, undisturbed, for about five minutes. When the bottoms of the potatoes start to brown, using a spatula, flip the potatoes.
Repeat at least 3-4 times.
When potatoes and onions are very brown, remove to plate covered with several layers of paper towels. Blot with additional paper towel to remove excess oil.
Season with plenty of salt and pepper.
Serve immediately, with ketchup made available.
Note: Depending on the size of your pan, this recipe may need to be halved or made in two shifts.
