Cottage-fried potatoes

The ultimate cheap, vegan comfort food, and the peasantiest of peasant dishes; literally just onions, potatoes and some oil.

I loooooove this dish. love it, seriously... it is delicious and it helps me when I get those fast-food cravings. It's better than fries, it's a nice, salty, (slightly) greasy, potatoey wonderful amazing concoction. SOmetimes the simplest things are the best thigns, you know? Here's the recipe.

Cottage-Fried Potatoes

2 cups potato, peeled, halved and thinly sliced (equal to 2 large or 3 medium sized potato)

2 cup onion, halved and thinly sliced (equal to one very large or 2 largish or 3 medium sized onions.)

a few tablespoons of oil of some kind (healthier options are, of course better... something in an olive would likely give you those good fats you need, that your body is actually craving when it's saying "mcdonalds" to you)...


Fry up the whole mess until the onions are carmelized and some are a little crispy, adn the potatoes are nice and flaky or possibly crispy too. however well done you like it to be.


Season with salt and pepper.


This should serve four, but I can usually down the whole mess myself. :) Yup. That's right.

Woooooo! This sounds yummy. I will have to give it a try, even though my husband doesn't like onions...I love onions...

You can do the same thing with cabbage and it is delish.
