Family Fit Fried Potatoes

Family Fit Fried Potatoes

This dish is much healthier than the world “Fried” would suggest. Very tasty, too.


2 large potatoes, scrubbed clean with skin on
½ large onion
1-2 tsp Kosher or Sea salt (to taste)
1 tsp black pepper
olive oil


sharp knife/cutting board
frying pan
metal spatula


Cut potatoes in half lengthwise, then slice to no more than 1/4 inch thickness.


Slice onion in thin slices.

In a frying pan heat ½ inch of olive oil to medium heat.


Place potatoes in frying pan. Top with onions (do not put onions in before potatoes, because they will burn before the potatoes cook through). Salt and pepper.


Put a lid on it and let it sit for several minutes.


When the bottom layer of potatoes start to brown, turn them.


Leave the lid off for a few minutes, turn the potatoes again, and put the lid back on for about 5 more minutes.

Potatoes are done when a fork pierces them easily.

If needed, drain on paper towels.
