smothered potatoes: true southern comfort food
Want an anytime dish that goes well with almost anything you cook? Be it with eggs & toast, pork chops & mac-n-cheese, or as an after midnight snack, smothered potatoes are one tasty little treat! My version of my papa’s recipe reminds me of being at my grandparent’s on summer days. The breakfast was always huge and the dinner was always savory.
Ingredients (serves 2):
7 small-medium sized Potatoes (I prefer red)
1/4 medium Onion
Oil (olive, vegetable, or one of your preference)
Pepper (preferably crushed and not powdered)
Cooking pan with a Lid or something to safely cover it while the food cooks
*Bowls to put chopped onions and potatoes in are optional
Separately dice the onion and potatoes.
Add oil to a cooking pan over medium heat. Put onion in oil, and add a little salt and pepper. Saute/sweat onions until they become a little translucent. Next, add your diced potatoes. In my cooking method, I like to add more oil if there doesn’t look to be enough to avoid burning the potatoes. Add salt and pepper to your liking in the mix.
I like my potatoes well seasoned! Let the potatoes cook covered for a minimum of 15 minutes, checking and stirring them during that time. I then taste to know when the potatoes are done (they will no longer be crunchy).
cook the smothered potatoes yourself!
