Ingredients For potatoes and onions

  • 1 1/2 lb
    potatoes, sliced thin - white thin-skinned works best
  • 1 lg
    sweet onion, sliced thin
  • coarse salt, to taste
  • 1 Tbsp
    canola oil
  • 2 Tbsp

How To Make potatoes and onions

  • 1
    Heat a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Then add the oil and butter.
  • 2
    Lightly salt the sliced potatoes and onions. Add them to the heated pan (butter should be melted and foamy).
  • 3
    Put a heat-safe dinner plate on top of the potatoes and onions and then place a heavy object on top of the plate. Let the potatoes and onions get a nice crust, about 2-3 minutes, then turn them and replace the plate/weights to let the other side crust. Keep turning the potatoes and onions for about 20 minutes, until they are all golden and crusted.
