Southern Fried Potatoes compliment many dishes, are easy to cook and are a favorite on any table. This recipe uses a cooking hack that works for most fried potatoes.

I almost always zap my potatoes in the microwave before frying them – just until they are slightly tender. The nice thing about this method is that I have time to slice onions, peppers, heat my oil, work on other food, etc. etc.

This particular recipe uses red potatoes but I make it with good old fashioned Idaho russet taters too. Although I don’t favor sour cream on my potatoes, I’m sure it would be tasty for those who enjoy it.

I can never have too many potato recipes. We absolutely love them, even though they’ve gotten a bad rap over the last few years. According to the USDA Dietary Guidelines a serving of potatoes is 1 cup diced. For an individual with diabetes, a serving is 3 ounces (a small potato). Blast those carbs, why must you taste so darn good?!

Fried potatoes go together with a number of dishes including my Sweet BBQ Meatballs and Freezer Crock-pot Pork Ribs
