I mentioned in my post on Baked Potatoes  that I would use the surplus potatoes for other recipes.  One of my favourite weekend breakfast options is simple fried potatoes.  These are made with left over potato, whether baked or boiled, and makes a nice savoury addition.


  • Potatoes 1-2 precooked
  • Onion 1 medium
  • Butter  25 grams/ 5 tsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste



Peel and slice the onion into thin (1/8 – 1/4 inch) slices.  Then cut the pre-cooked potatoes into slices of a similar thickness.  In a frying pan, melt 1/2 of the butter at medium high heat.  When it begins to bubble add the onion slices and slightly sprinkle with salt.  Stir frequently so it does not burn.  When the onions begin to separate and caramelise (approximately 10 minutes) add the remaining butter and the potato slices.  Deduce to medium heat and allow bottoms to brown slightly before flipping (stir sooner if onions begin to over darken).  Work the potatoes and onions to insure even browning.  Add a small amount of black pepper during the final stirs.  Dish onto plates and season to taste.
