Potatoes with Onion and Green Peppers

I was really wanting french fries.

Deep down in my heart, I love french fries.

I know . . . kind of childish, huh?

French fries and ketch-up.

But on this night, I couldn't really justify going to get french fries.

I mean, I "could have;"

After all, I was making a very kid-friendly meal.

This meal, my cherubs really like . . . and it is really not one of my favorites.

Sloppy Joes!

My internal compromise was to add french fries!

French fries would go perfect with the sandwich.

Instead of giving in, I made a very grown-up decision.

I decided to make a french fry alternative:  a pan fried potato.

Only I would make it better than a french fry!

I'd add some grown-up flavor!

But not too grown-up, because I still wanted to use ketchup.

Confession:  this conversation was really going on in my head!

Potatoes with Onion and Green Peppers

1 small onion, chopped
1/2 large green pepper, chopped
2-3 TBSP oil (or bacon grease, if you have it . . . and I had it!)
1/2 package of frozen hash-browns
salt and pepper to taste

In a large skillet, heat the oil.

Add the chopped onion and green pepper.  Saute the veggies until browned.

Add the frozen hash-browns.  Season with a bit of salt and pepper.  Stir to mix the veggies and potatoes together.

Cook until the potatoes are browned thoroughly, with at least one crispy edge on each little hash-brown!  Seriously!  That's what makes this tasty!

That . . .and some ketchup!
