Recipe Notes

This is a recipe that was inspired by a hotel meal. I ordered poached eggs for breakfast at a very fine restaurant thinking that they would be cooked properly. The eggs were great, but as often happens dishes come with things you didn’t order, like home fries.

They were terrible. Mostly because they were greasy, but the potatoes were so dry. Mind you, I don’t like an excess amount of fat, and any chef can hide their sins with enough fat and salt, but these were especially oily. And that’s so unnecessary.

Using less olive oil and lightly browning the onions, then adding the potatoes, makes delicious home fries. The natural starch in both the onions and potatoes is enough to bind them together slightly.

This recipe is enough to get you a point on the Mediterranean diet score for vegetables!

"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects."
