Cinnamon potatoes

Yield: 3 servings

Measure Ingredient
3 Potatoes, lg.
2 Onions, chopped, med.
3 tablespoons Butter
2 tablespoons Cinnamon


Do NOT replace the butter in this recipe for anything else. I can tell you from my experience and experimentation that the results are NOT the same. It is the combination of tastes of butter, onions and cinnamon that make this dish. I have even tried combinations of oleo and butter, and oil and butter with disastrous results. The frying fat MUST be pure, 100% butter.


Peel and slice potatoes. Peel and chop onions. Melt butter in a skillet. Place potatoes and onion in skillet. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add cinnamon (I used the quantity of 2 tb, this is merely a guesstimate, I use a VERY generous amount). Fry on medium heat, turning occasionally, until potatoes are tender and slightly browned.

Great served with shirred eggs or fried eggs with crisp bacon.
