I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Fried Potatoes

I love fried potatoes. I like them best cooked in a cast iron fry pan, over an open fire or on the stove. They seem to get that beautiful brown color and get a little crisper. Yummy!


FRIED POTATOES (serves 4)

Ingredients:
*6 large potatoes, peeled & sliced
*1 onion, sliced
*1 teaspoon salt
*1 teaspoon pepper
*1/2 teaspoon paprika
*1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
*1/3 cup lard (sorry, it's the way grandma & mom made it)

Directions:
~Soak potatoes in cold water until crisp.
~Drain water, and dry potatoes with clean towel or paper towels.
~Cut onions and mix with potatoes.
~Add seasonings mix well.
~Melt lard in a cast iron pan (or large fry pan) on medium-high.
~Heat until very hot.
~Carefully add potatoes & onions.
~Watch for browning and turn (you will need to turn several times to avoid burning).
~Remove when potatoes are done, a nice carmel color and very tender.

Variation:
`Substitute lard for vegetable oil.
`Substitute lard for butter.
`Omit garlic powder.
`Omit paprika.
`Omit onions.
