Quick and easy home fries

I linked these to Moms Crazy Cooking !!

We slept in Sunday morning, so when I finally got around to making breakfast, it turned into brunch !!
Tony and Taylor wanted scrambled eggs, toast and home fries.  Everyone calls them something different.  I like to call them American fries.  I found a very simple recipe at allrecipes.  Home fries are very easy to make.  They take a few minutes to cook because you want to be sure the potatoes are done all the way through.  They would be great side dish for dinner instead of the usual mashed or baked potato.  You can also make breakfast for dinner one night, we like to do that once or twice a month.  Great way to save some money. 

If I was making them for just me I would add onion and green pepper.  That would be yummy.  I did add garlic and onion powder to the potatoes while they were frying.  What Tony can't see, he can't pick out !!

Quick and easy home fries.
3 medium russet potatoes, cubed
3 tablespoons butter or margarine (I used 1 table. butter and 2 table. olive oil)
salt and pepper to taste (I added 1 tea. garlic and onion powder)


1.Rinse potato cubes with cold water, and drain well. Make sure potato cubes are all the same size so they will be done at the same time.  Melt butter or margarine in a large skillet over medium heat. Place potatoes in the skillet, and stir to coat with butter. Season with salt and pepper. Cover with a lid, and cook for 10 minutes. Remove the lid, and cook for another 10 minutes, turning frequently until brown and crisp on all sides.
