I loved these. They took me forever to make, longer than an hour and a half, but that was my fault. I didn't think the onions were overpowering, but i sauteed them for a bit longer than directed. I also added about 1/8 tsp of cayenne to add a little kick. I used dried parsley because it was on hand. I will definitely make these again!
Home Fries are the ultimate in comfort-food side dishes. They brown beautifully and have a rich flavor that both your grownup and kid frineds will love.Briefly microwaving the potatoes gives them a head start on cooking. Quick tip - adding butter not only helps them brown better, but also lends rich flavor. Waxy potatoes won't break down in the pan when cubed and sautéed.
