My son saw this being prepared the other day on a cooking show on TV. I have not found the recipe yet so I went by my sons description on how he saw it made. The potatoes were served with a sour cream sauce, but I don't think you even need the sauce. If I could find the recipe I would like to try the sauce.
These are so simple to make and taste just as good fried in butter only.
