Have you ever gone to a diner and ordered home fries with your breakfast? How often were they just awful, blah, plain, fried, cut up potatoes? The thing that bothers me most about that, is that it doesn’t take much to make good home fries. Cut up an onion with it. Cut up some green pepper. Add some spices or seasonings.

Here is a quick and easy version that you can make at home.

1\4 cup plus one Tbsp. olive oil

3 potatoes, cut into 1″ pieces

Coarse salt

2 onions, sliced into rings (sprinkle with a little bit of sugar)

1\2 tsp. smoked paprika

2 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley(optional)

Heat 3 Tbsp. of the oil in a large cast iron skillet.

Cook potatoes, covered for 5 mins.

Season with salt.

Add remaining oil and the sliced onions.

Stir. Reduce heat, cover and cook for another 5 mins.

Uncover and fry, tossing often, until onions and potatoes begin to brown. About 8 mins.

Sprinkle with smoked paprika, and cook for about another 8 mins.

Remove. Sprinkle with parsley, salt, and pepper.
