I usually make a version of these potatoes for breakfast, but switched up just a few of the ingredients & made these for supper/dinner. The DOUBLE CHEDDAR ADDITION really added a lot of flavor. I added the Kerry Gold White BallyShannon Cheddar Cheese as well as Mild cheddar, & then using crumbled bacon for the additional flavor, really ENHANCED THE FLAVORS OF THIS DISH, not to mention the 3 types of onions & the colorful sweet peppers that I used. The aroma was so strong you could smell it outside. My neighbor asked me what was I cooking? Said it really smelled like dinner time. SMILE

How To Make

  • 1
    You will need a large skillet, with lid, I used a 16 inch size. Add butter and olive or canola oil to skillet, & leave on stove till ready to heat & start cooking.
  • 2
    Chop all 3 onions & bell peppers, then cut mini sweet peppers into rings, and add to a large colander.
  • 3
    Peel & cube potatoes and add to same colander.
  • 4
    Heat oil and butter over low heat, wash all of the veggies througly, drain and add to skillet.
  • 5
    Add the chopped or minced garlic, salt & pepper, and chopped chive. Stir to make sure they are not sticking and heat is medium low. Cover with lid and continue to cook.
  • 6
    While potatoes are cooking, grate the Cheese if not already grated.
  • 7
    Check potatoes to make sure they are not sticking and all the liquid has not evaporated. If it has,add 1/4 to 1/3 cup of water, just enough to create steam and prevent potatoes from sticking. Cover with lid and continue to cook till potatoes are tender for a total time of about 20 to 25 minutes.
