I’ve been making these potatoes since my daughter was very young. She loved them so much that they were a regular side dish on most nights.
Working in a diner, I serve my Home-style Potatoes with eggs and bacon all the time. People love their potatoes for breakfast. Imagine having them with dinner. Let me show you how I make my Homestyle Fried Potatoes.
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 30 to 35 minutes
Yields: 4 servings
Equipment: 12-inch sautépan, chef’s knife
1 tablespoon olive oil
5 tablespoons of butter, unsalted
1 large red onion, finely diced
6 cups of red potatoes, 1/2 inch cubes
2 tablespoons garlic, minced
1/2 cup multi-color mini sweet bell peppers, finely diced
1 1/2 tablespoons Kosher salt
1 1/2 teaspoons of freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons fresh Italian flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
In a large sauté pan, preheated on medium heat, add olive oil and diced red onions. Sprinkle with 1/2 tablespoon of the Kosher salt, 1/2 teaspoon of the fresh ground black pepper, and garlic powder. Cook for 5 minutes until onions are soften. Add the freshly minced garlic, cook for 1 minutes more. Next add 2 1/2 tablespoons of butter, stir to combine until the butter melts completely.
Reduce the heat down to medium-low, add the remaining butter, allow to melt. Add the diced red potatoes, diced sweet bell peppers, and dried oregano. Using a flat spatula, toss the potatoes to coat. Allow the potatoes to cook for 5 minutes before turning. Continue cooking over medium-low heat for another 20 to 25 minutes, turning occasionally until potatoes are browned and cooked through. Turn the heat off add the Italian flat-leaf parsley and toss.
These you have it, my Homestyle Fried Potatoes.
