Simple Home Fries


                                                               Simple Home Fries

                                                                     


I was 15 when I started working at my dad's little lunchonette in a small place called A & S  Mott Ave.FarRockaway, more than just a walk down memory lane, it was a bond with the community. My first introduction in business, I thank him for all his lessons. The sound of the grill cooking up a storm, bacon, eggs, pancakes , home fries, the sounds and smiles of our customers awaiting their favorite homefries. I don't know  what it was the oil, the onions or the potatoes, our breakfast special was from 6 to 11, by 9 o'clock we never had any homefries left. Here's my simple recipe of home fries.


Home Fries

Ingredients
  • 4 large potatoes ( boiled and cut)
  • 1 large onion
  • 1/3 cup of oil
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • paprika or red hot pepper
  • hot tobasco sauce 


First,  boil your potatoes and drain ( add salt while boiling)
Secondly, cut them into small pieces in a skillet
Thirdly, cut your onion in strips on top of your potatoes
Fourthly,add your olive oil, salt, pepper and paprika
And lastly, place on your stove cook on high for about 10 - 15 minutes
and serve with scrambled or sunnyside up eggs and fried bacon !
* Our customers used to add tobasco sauce over their homefries.

  1. I used to love home fries-especially when eating at a small corner store! They were always the best. I never added any hot sauce--but liked my eggs over easy with 2 slices of bread (preferably Rye)
