Mom’s Stove Top Sliced Potatoes with Onion

When our Thanksgiving this year did not include my Mom’s traditional dinner……….., the one I’ve eaten annually for 4 decades,

 I started having cravings for traditional dishes that always reduce stress, are always inexpensive, and relatively easy to fix.

My Mom’s sliced potatoes with onion recipe fit the bill for our weekend at home.

The weather is turning colder and it’s time to enjoy some home cooked meals.

Mom’s Sliced Potatoes with Onion:





















1.   Slice 8 – 10 White Potatoes into 1/4  inch slices.   2.  Store sliced potatoes in an ice water bath for 1 hour (to reduce browning and starch)  3.  Slice 2 medium onions into slices or dice.   4.  In a large fry pan, arrange alternating layers of drained, dried potato slices and onions.  5.  Season each layer with salt and pepper.  6.  Place about 4 Tbs. of vegetable spread or Olive Oil onto the top layer.               7.  Cover pan allowing a vent for steam to release and cook potatoes on medium- low heat for approximately 30 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender. 8.  Remove from heat and let stand at least 5 minutes.    Serves 3-4 ( or just me and my husband) 🙂

Healthy additions:  Chives, Red Pepper flakes, 1/2 cup Almond Milk, Paprika, Bac-os.  

To brown the slices more:  Turn the heat up for the last 5 minutes of cooking after the potatoes are soft.
