Linda's Awesome Home Fries

"I was looking for a little added flavor in my home fries this morning and created this luscious recipe. They were awesome! I splurged and had them with fried eggs and toast for a delicious weekend breakfast. Great flavor and just a little spiciness from the seasoning. They are really tasty! I cooked these on medium-high, and from the starting of peeling the onion to putting them on my plate was 45 minutes, so if you cook them on high it is going to take less time, and if you cook them on medium it's going to take longer. Medium-high worked perfect for me, as it browned the home fries nicely and didn't scorch the onions! See my picture. If you have a large cast iron frying pan, I would suggest using it, as they make the "BEST" home fries :)"

Made these to have with eggs and toast and they are delicious! So much tastier than plain fried tatters. I didn't use the Tony's as I couldn't find it when I went shopping, but they were still delicious without the heat! Now a staple for my meals!

I made this recipe for two games, "Pick Me !! Tag " & What's On The Menu ? " on 9/14/18. Except for not using the Garlic (used Garlic Powder)& the Creole Seasoning, the recipe was made as it was written ,even right down to the Cast Iron Skillet. ;) . But a few minutes after adding the potatoes , they started to stick. So I transferred them to a non stick skillet and continued browning them. We both enjoyed them very much with our sausage,eggs,and toast. Thanks for posting and " Keep Smiling :) "

Since trying Tony's for the first time we are in love with this spice. I sprinkled it lightly on our fries the first time I made them and found the spice to give great flavor to the potatoes and it wasn't hot. The second time I made them I used a little more and it was great. I was so worried to use too much the first time. What a great home fry recipe and we will eat these a lot. They prove to be such a great breakfast side to our eggs, sausage and sour dough toast!

I didn't use the Tony's but made it otherwise following the recipe. We loved these potatoes! I know we will have these often on the weekends when we like to make a big breakfast/brunch. I recently made them for family when they came for brunch and they really loved them. They got nice and golden brown and the flavor was so much more than just potatoes fried up. This is the way I will make them from now on. Anything else would taste too plain for us now!
