The following amounts were used for dinner tonight. Three potato-loving adults did not even come close to finishing this amount. (Chad bought 7 pounds of potatoes thinking that was what we would need!)
4 pounds of potatoes; unpeeled, sliced into eighths and then sliced thin
1 sweet onion, diced
1 stick butter
salt and pepper
Melt the butter in a pan and then add the potatoes and onion. Cook over medium to medium-high heat until the potatoes and onions are thoroughly cooked. Then crank up the heat to high and crisp up the potatoes, flipping frequently so they don't burn.
