This meal is very versatile. I’ve posted the basic recipe here, but you can add other veggies of your choice, or ham or bacon or other meat. And it’s about as cheap as meals can get! It makes a great breakfast, as well.
one potato for each person
1 large onion per 5-6 potatoes
Butter (approximately 1 tsp per potato)
Peel potatoes. Use a cheese grater to shred the potatoes into a big pot. Cover with plenty of water and bring to a boil. Boil for approximately 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Strain potatoes using a fine mesh strainer. Melt butter in pot. (If you’re using bacon or other meat, you might want to omit the butter and just start with the meat in the pot.) Add onion and potato (and any other veggies you’re using). Fry, stirring occasionally, until browned and fairly dry.
Serve with: Applesauce, Maple Yogurt, Fruit Salad, and eggs (if desired)
