Great with breakfast, especially on cold mornings. The secret to diner-style homefries is to boil the potatoes first; otherwise, the potatoes take too long to cook and never turn properly soft inside.
- 2 medium potatoes, washed but not peeled
- enough water in a saucepan to cover the potatoes
- 1 small white onion, chopped
- salt and ground black pepper to taste
- garlic powder (optional)
- chili powder (optional)
- dried crushed red pepper (optional)
- Wash the potatoes and cut them into two or three pieces apiece.
- Cook them in water about twenty minutes, or until they're pretty soft.
- Take them out of the water and allow the water on them to evaporate, then slice the potatoes into small chunks.
- Fry the onion in a few tablespoons of vegetable oil until it is tender.
- Add the potatoes and fry at a medium-high heat until browned, about ten or fifteen minutes.
- Add salt, pepper, garlic (optional) chili powder (optional) and hot pepper (optional) to taste.
- Serve with breakfast as a side to eggs, pancakes, waffles, or even cereal; and garnish with ketchup, barbecue sauce, salsa, lightly fried tomato wedges, cilantro, or parsley, if desired.
