Grandpa’s Fried Potatoes

My dad loves fried potatoes. This may be one of the first things I learned to make when I was younger. They are good to eat with almost anything, even for breakfast.

Grandpa’s Fried Potatoes

Grandpa’s Fried Potatoes


  • 8-10 medium-large potatoes (peeled, washed, and sliced or diced)
  • 1 large onion, sliced or diced
  • oil or butter for frying
  • salt and pepper to taste


Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Add the onions and potatoes, cover and fry for 10-12 minutes. Use a spatula to flip the potatoes every so often to keep them from sticking.

Remove the lid and continue to fry another 5-10 minutes until tender.

Season with salt and pepper and enjoy!
