Would the men in your family be totally satisfied with meat and potatoes...mine would....or at least my husband would. My 17 year old son decided a little over a month ago that he was no longer going to eat meat. Ladies...this was a BIG shock!! Up until then my son could wolf down a steak before I could even get it on his plate.He always called himself a mean, meat eating machine. This did make my life easy because as long as I had some kind of meat in the house and a bag of potatoes they were happy.
Now I am always looking for recipes I think my 6'4 280 pound,size 13 shoe wearing son will eat. He is actually becoming a pretty good cook himself now that he can't pop a frozen meat lovers pizza in the oven!
Here is one of our favorite potato side dishes. It is quick, easy and seems we always have all the ingredients in the house. We really like it with eggs on a lazy Saturday morning, or with chicken, fish, grilled pork chops, and of course my husbands favorite meat loaf. We always make them when we are camping. I bet your men will like it too!!
6 large potatoes or 3 baking potatoes ( I just usually cook one potato per person and if there are leftovers that's great too).
1 Large onion
4 tablespoons butter (yes I know....and you may need a bit more depending on the amount of potatos you use. But the flavor is amazing)
Salt and Pepper or Season salt...I like that better myself.
Wash and poke a few holes in your potato's.
Put them in the microwave and cook until fork tender.
While potatoes are cooking, cut your onions into rings and then cut in half.
Once potato's are done, cut them into bite size pieces.
In a large skillet put your butter, potato's and onions in. Salt and pepper or pepper and season salt to taste. Cover (or not...sometimes my potatoes are not soft enough when I take them out of the microwave) and let cook until onions and potatoes are tender.
