    My husband APPLAUDS you!!! Nothing better that home fried potatoes!! I add onion to my when frying (gotta love a sweet fried onion) and some old bay seasoning, but pretty much like he loves!! And there is something about the iron skillet that makes them even better!! Thanks for sharing this one!!

    This looks so easy and delicious!!!!!!!

    Parsley looks good, but I would use rosemary instead, but rosemary potatoes are a whole other recipe!!!

    The gentle steaming plus browning looks like a very good strategy. I've got another way I learned in France that I'll post soon.

    This is how I make my potatoes for breakfast except I'll chop up some onion and add a bit of garlic powder. The parsley is always great with these potatoes

    I was just looking at your recipe for Grandma's Fried Potatoes, boy do they look good. I love fried potatoes, I can make a meal on them alone and often do. My grand-daughter is learning to cook, she helps me out a lot in the kitchen, in fact she's going to join this website today. To go on....she already knows how to frie potatoes and she does an excellent job. She makes them for me sometimes when I'm really busy trying to ship our hairpieces and wigs or get them listed. Some days I'm sooooo busy with ebay that I don't have time to stop and cook, not even time to make a sandwich, so I'm really grateful that she has such a great interest in cooking and cooks for me when I need her too.
    I'm definitely going to try your take on the fried potatoes TODAY! Reading this recipe has made my mouth water for them!! :)
