      janie harris: They are not my potatoes but everyone has there own preference. Leaving potatoes out for to long, cause them to brown before they are cooked. However thank you for the additional tips. :)

      Personally, i think the potatoes are way too thick. Slice potatoes as thing as possible to make them cook more quickly and crisp up well.

      Also -- something my mom always did with peeled potatoes, whether for regular or french fried potatoes, was slice ahead of time. Set them on a towel (my mom I now I used flour cloth towels, but modern dish towels will work or, probably less well, paper towels). Use edges of towel to blot potato slices, so as to dry them out more. Let set 1/2 our or more, on towel, with edges up around and covering potatoes. Then blot again before putting in skillet. It really does make a difference in how they cook.

      Lamme: For some reason I love those things and we make them often. You can add onion to but you add those the last 5 or 10 minutes before you serve. :)

      These sound wonderful. Looks like fried potatoes for Sunday breakfast.

      I'm bookmarking this, because I don't have a definite recipe for them and always wanted it. This is a staple in my family. Yes, another Midwest U.S. dish for sure! But when I visited Norway, my cousin cooked it for me there the night before I left. I'm sure she learned it from her mother. The only difference was that she put shredded cheese on top. Brown goat cheese (gjeitost), but any kind works, and then she just used the potatoes and oil with that.

      Patty, It probably is as it was handed down to us and I have always loved the fried potatoes and the story behind it. I figure if my grandparents and your parents could survive the great depression, so can we.:)

    • Patty Inglish, MS profile image

      Patty Inglish 8 years ago from North America

      This sounds like the recipe both of my parents used during the Depression and when they ran out of onions, they just left them out. Potatoes were apparently abundant and cheap.

      I am a definate potato lover. And fried potatoes is one of my favorites. I didn't know that the added parsley helps turn the onion golden brown. I haven't had these in awhile but now I'm ready, after reading this hub, to cook some up very soon! Thank you!

      Teresa: sauteed potatoes sound scrumptious , I would love to try the recipe and bless my father's Irish heart , may he rest in peace I am still trying to figure out his stuffed cabbage recipe, he to was also Irish. :)

      I LOVE Bristol Boy's comment about the skillet (by the way, before I forget, I am Irish through and through, and there's nothing wrong anyone can ever do with the mighty potato. This sounds and looks fabulous, thanks. We used to have sauteed potatoes, similar but in butter, not oil) -- I used to get the words Winnebago and rutabaga mixed up when I first came to the States.

      I grew up on salmon patties and fried potatoes, and I must say not too bad. Ours were plain though, just potatoes and oil.

      Must be the Anglo-American Gap Lol :) you could serve them with Fish , but no not fish based. lololol :)

      BristolBoy 8 years ago from Bristol

      Never heard of doing this with potatoes before. Like all other potato dishes (crisps, chips, boiled, mashed, roasted) and so will have to try this some day. I also thought that the recipe was fished based when I saw the ingredient list - for some reason I thought that skillet was a type of fish - must be the Anglo-American language gap (or my love of fish and chips!).
