What a fabulous idea to microwave the potatoes before frying them! Why haven't I ever thought of that? I served these for dinner along with Salmon Souffle and peas and it all went wonderful together. I used russet potatoes, white onion and creole season salt. I enjoyed these with ketchup, but think they would also be great with sour cream. Freddy Cat says thanks for the potatoes! Made for the Billboard recipe tag game.
