This is the healthiest dish, although it is delicious. For the people who do not like them, the onion is optional.
I make it for my family often and the restaurant I work at changed their recipe to this!
Add diced tomatoes alongside the onion and garlic for a tasty addition.
Enough peanut oil to wet the entire bottom of your pan
2 tbs unsalted sweet cream butter
1 lb Idaho Russet or Red potatoes (I like Reds – but that is just a personal preference)
½ medium sized sweet onion like Vidalia
Salt and Pepper to taste
Garnish with paprika and fresh basil
