    I forgot to cook the potatoes before, so I just diced them into 1/4 inch cubes and pan fried them for the time it took to chop them all up. I put them in as I was chopping them so I had more room on my cutting board. Then after they tasted almost done, I added the onion. We seasoned at the table so our 10 month old son could eat them without seasonings and we could. We liked how they turned out better than shredding potatoes for hashbrowns.

    I made this trying to replicate a fried potatoe I had in a German restaurant. They were very good. I used a little more butter than it called for and may add a little season salt next time, overall I was pleased!
