One of the first recipes I ever posted on this blog was for my unabashedly buttery home fries. They are always a hit because the combination of golden potatoes, salty butter and a kick of cayenne pepper is heavenly. I made them again last weekend, this time adding a bit of green pepper into the mix because it sounded good. And I think I like it even better.
So here’s the recipe again. Do treat yourself.
2 large golden potatoes (or 4 small ones), thin sliced into 1-inch pieces
1/2 an onion, thin sliced
4 T. butter
2 t. salt
1 t. pepper
1/2 t. cayenne pepper
1. Heat a large skillet over medium and melt your butter. Then add the potatoes and onions. While they’re cooking, season with salt, pepper and cayenne.
2. Cover, and continue cooking on medium about 10 minutes, or until the potatoes are soft. At this point, taste your taters, and if they’re a little bland, hit ’em with a little more seasoning (and if you’re brave, another pat of butter).
