This is the way my mom made parsley potatoes when I was young and money was scarce. I have always loved potatoes fried up like this and still make them today...I am sure many of you have fond memories of these fried morsels....

How To Make parsley potatoes/w bread cubes

  • 1
    Cover potato cubes with water and boil for 8 minutes to al dente- do not let them become mush. ( I usually use cold leftover potatoes for this recipe). Drain and put back into pan and back on the burner to let the heat from the stove(no flame)grate evaporate and dry the potatoes.
