Country Fried Potatoes
Dice Hash Browns or Country Fried Potatoes, whatever you want to call them, they are so yummy and easy to make. Serve them in a breakfast burrito, or eat them as a meal by themselves, or on a plate with eggs and bacon.
Servings: 6 people
- 4 to 5 medium potatoes washed, and peeled if desired
- 1 cup diced kielbasa sausage but you can use whatever meat you want (225g)
- 1/2 large onion diced
- 1/2 cup of diced bell peppers 75g
- Oil canola oil, vegetable oil, shortening, clarified butter, avocado oil, coconut oil (a few tablespoons)
- Garlic powder
Wash and dry the potatoes, peel them if desired. Cut them up into small cubes. If you want them extra crisp, boil them in water for 3 to 4 minutes. This will remove the starch, or soak them in saltwater for 30 minutes. Then dry them.
Add the oil to a skillet, and set on the burner, and heat it up with medium to medium-high heat.
Now dice up the onions, peppers, and the sausage or whatever meat you are using, if you are using meat.
Add the onions and peppers to the hot skillet and cook them for a few minutes. Then add in the sausage. Keep cooking until the sausage is lightly browned. The type of Kielbasa I use comes precooked, you just need to brown it.Remove the sausage, onions, and peppers and place in a bowl.If using a meat that isn't precooked, and is fatty, like breakfast sausage, you may elect to cook that in the skillet first, without oil, then remove a bit of the oil, before adding in the onions and peppers.
Add the potatoes to the skillet and cook them until browned evenly. It will take a while, especially if you didn't pre-boil them first, which I don't always do. Season the potatoes with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
Once the potatoes are nearly all browned, add back in the sausage, onion, and peppers mix and continue cooking everything until the potatoes are soft in the center and browned/crispy to your likely.Take a spoon and taste it (blow on it first, it will be hot), if needed add more seasonings.Serve with eggs, bacon, fruit, put in a breakfast burrito, etc. Enjoy!
