Butter Fried Potatoes With Onions
This is one of my favorite ways to make potatoes. Add bacon and it gets even better, but then bacon makes everything better. Throw in green or red pepper or even cheese, the possibilities are endless. I am posting this for the people that are new to cooking and to remind seasoned cooks how versatile this recipe can be. We make this recipe all the time as it is so easy, delicious and a great side dish.

Yum! Reminds me of my Mom’s wonderful “home fries”, made w/oil for frying thinly sliced potato slices. They all stuck together, and were especially loved by my niece Jessie, who could easily polish off a plateful.
Great recipe, Diane– thanks!
What a sweet memory Ermine, thank you for sharing it! 🥰
That looks so delicious, Diane. I can hear the sizzle and smell the butter and bacon from here. Bacon makes everything better indeed and I do love fried onions too.
This is one of those recipes my husband likes to make. I tell him he makes it so much better than me, just like cooking on the grill. 🤣
one of my fav potato dishes
Me too Beth! 🥰
Butter, potatoes, onions. Who could want anything more?
I agree Dorothy! 💕
Love fried potatoes and bacon makes everything better.
It sure does and I love to make them one time without and the next time with bacon. It makes a completely different taste.
Everything tastes better with butter!
I agree! 🥰
I love home fries, and I always put onions and sometimes pepper in and bacon grease or butter really adds to it ! We have been to so many breakfast restaurants and their home fries are kinda blah. We prefer the ones we make at home, like yours !
I don’t like anything in restaurants anymore compared to our home cooked food. A lot has to do with making it our way but I think the restaurant can’t get help and hire cooks that don’t know what they are doing, with the exception of fine dining restaurants.
Great reminder as to how special potatoes can be! And since, at the moment, I am without an oven, even better cooked on the burner!
Thank you and this recipe has your name all over it without on oven!
It sure does!
I haven’t made these in a while, but I do love them. Adding crumbled bacon sounds good. I don’t peel my potatoes–supposed to be healthier and honestly I can’t tell the difference. Thanks for putting these back on my radar.
You’re welcome Linda! When the grandkids eat here we peel as they don’t like to eat the skin, when it’s just us we don’t. 🤣
Hi Diane, you had me at potato but I was smitten when you threw in some bacon! I might have this for dinner! Hugs, C
Fry your bacon first and use the bacon grease, so good! Thank you 🥰
Back when my father was still around we used to have a “country breakfast” every Sunday morning and that always included fried potatoes, eggs and some type of meat (usually sausage links). Brings back some tasty memories.
That would make me look forward to Sundays! What a great memory Linda. 💕
Yes, always a farmer’s breakfast … a lovely smell as well!
This recipe is mouthwatering good!
Thank you, I could make this in my sleep I have made it so much. Lol
What a great way to enjoy potatoes – with bacon! I’ve tried variations of this recipe, but I think I like it best with the bacon. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
Like you said, it’s so easy … and looks delicious! I’m definitely going to make it this weekend to serve with our ‘braai’ meat 🌟.
Thanks so much and have a wonderful Easter weekend!
My daughter loves these potatoes and serves them for breakfast in a bowl with an egg on top. She puts onions, bacon and peppers in them. Now I want to make these for breakfast, Diane.
That’s so funny because I have to have a sunny side up egg with mine to mix in with them too. However, I would still eat them if I didn’t have the egg! Lol
Great minds thing alike.
