Mom’s Fried Potatoes

Mom’s Fried Potatoes

These potatoes¬† remind me of my childhood. Mom’s fried potatoes were one of my favorite side dishes growing up. I remember when I was old enough, Mom put me in charge of flipping the potato slices. One of the many ways she introduced me to cooking and why I enjoy it today. I’m so grateful. I also remember wishing we could fit more potatoes in the frying pan! The older I got the more I wanted. Mom’s fried potatoes go with anything. I honesty don’t remember what she used to make with them, maybe pork chops. I love making them with fish in particular, as in “fish and chips” and any leftovers can go with breakfast.

Mom’s Fried Potatoes
4 to 5 russet potatoes, sliced 1/4 inch round
3 tablespoons of fat (butter, ghee, olive oil, duck fat, lard, or left over bacon fat)
salt
pepper

 

 

1) Heat pan over medium heat, add fat, wait 30 seconds and add potatoes, sprinkle with salt and pepper.

2) Fry covered over medium heat for 10 minutes. This will soften the potatoes and brown them on the first side.

3) Remove cover and flip the potatoes with a spatula to the other side (as best you can) and brown the other side for 8 minutes or until desired doneness.

4) My favorite is to serve these with broiled fish or breakfast, but they go well with anything.

  • No wonder we like home fries, look how tempting they look.
    Through the years I learned to add onions for more flavor.
    I even liked to put green pepper in the mix depending what meat was on
    the menu. They are great with hamburgers and even hot dogs and beans.
    Love, Mom
