Comfort Food

Who doesn’t love comfort food?

A rainy morning and leftover potatoes… What to do?  Make home fries, of course!

I love a hearty breakfast but almost every day I have oatmeal. Today I thought, why not a tasty breakfast on a cool damp morning for my 97 year old mother and me? A couple of days ago we had some red skin potatoes as a side dish for dinner. A few simple ingredients can make some of the best meals.

  • With left over potatoes on hand, a small yellow onion and a few strips of red bell pepper, I grab a large skillet and the EVOO (extra virgin olive oil).
  • Cut the onions and peppers, a half inch dice works well.
  • Slice the potatoes into bite sized pieces.
  • Heat the oil over medium high heat, add the potatoes and cook until they start to brown. Turn over often to prevent sticking.
  • Add to the pan the onions and pepper and cook until tender.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Serve warm.

I like sausage and sunny side up eggs with home fries.  A few shakes of Tabasco, some toasted Italian bread with butter and a hot cup of coffee.

Mom was pleased!
