Home Fries

There are a few dishes that my husband is definitely in charge of in the kitchen. They are:

Chicken Parmesan

Matzo Ball Soup

Eggs Over Medium

Home Fries

Home Fries is one of those personal, you-can-do-it-in-your-sleep type recipes that maybe every now and then you play with – add a little of this or a little of that – but the end result usually comes out about the same. I love these and if I’m in a kitchen-sharing mood I’ll ask him to make these for breakfast, or as a side for dinner.

Or if I just want them.

Home Fries

3 lb. Russet potatoes, washed and diced (we have used red potatoes before and they are just as good)

1 medium size onion, chopped

1-2 sticks butter

Garlic powder



Melt the butter over high heat and add the potatoes.


Stir to combine, and when they get a slight brown crust turn the heat down to medium high heat and flip them around a few times.

Add the onions, garlic powder, salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally over medium heat until golden brown, the onions are caramelized and potatoes are done all the way through. ← My husband wants you to know that he loves to cook on high heat. It seems to work for him, but I’m not crazy about keeping the heat cranked way up unless it’s absolutely necessary.


I think it makes him feel like a rebel.

But he’s a sweet rebel.

My husband doesn’t measure the last three ingredients, he just does it according to taste. With the garlic, it’s probably close to the equivalent of one clove. He typically uses 1-1/2 sticks of butter, but you may find that you need more as you’re cooking.


I like mine with ketchup….
