Pan Fried Potatoes
small onion, sliced or diced (optional)
maple syrup (optional)
unrefined salt to taste
Heat a generous amount of oil in a wide pan. Add onions, if using. Sauté. Dice up the potatoes to fill the pan single layer. Stir to coat potatoes in oil. Cover and cook for 7-8 minutes on "egg" temperature or medium low. Uncover and "flip" potatoes with a spatula...or at least un-stick them from the bottom of the pan. Cover and cook for another 7-8 minutes. Add an egg or two, if desired, to the pan and stir. Turn off heat and cover. Egg will be done by the time you call everyone to table. Salt to taste. The potatoes should be "melt in your mouth" soft on the inside and crispy on the outside. If you used onions, you can drizzle with a little maple syrup too to balance the sugars.
