Soft Fried Potatoes
By Jeanne Benavidez jeanneben
This a very basic recipe for beginning cooks. Its an easy recipe but a good go-to side dish. My Mom used to make fried potatoes this way and this is the way my family has always liked them. To me, you get more of the potato flavor when they aren't cooked too brown. The photos here are taken from the web to show the process and the end product.

I'm so glad you posted this recipe! With working mothers and fast food restaurants many new cooks may not know just how easy and rewarding it is to put a comfort food meal on the table! I am not a new cook by many means but I do recall my first attempts at fried potatoes - very brown and hard in the center!

Mmm Mmmmm fried potatoes and hot dogs one of my staples growing up, unfortunatley my husband doesn't like them that way. Nothing like some good comfort food.

Thank you so much, ladies. I do remember how confused and new I was to cooking,but I did remember some of our family favorites...nothing fancy, but very full-filling.
