You guys, as kids we fought over who got to have seconds of these, not because he didn’t make enough (with 6 kids I don’t know that enough was ever enough) but because they are just so good.
Head up, this is not a diet food (and I am only posting the half recipe). I come by my curvy figure naturally. Grin.
French Fry Hash Browns
1 stick butter
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 onion, large dice
4-6 tablespoons seasoning blend, your choice
½ a bag crinkle cut French fries
In a large skillet over medium heat melt the butter and olive oil together. Add the chopped onions and sauté until translucent. When the onions are soft stir the seasoning blend into them.
Add the frozen French fries and stir to combine, let the fries soak up all the seasoned butter. Let them brown stirring occasionally.
Don’t worry if some of the fries start breaking down, they are supposed to.
Confession time, growing up my sister and I ate ours smothered in syrup. However, as an adult I like them ketchup. It is amazing to me how unrefined my childhood taste buds were, not that ketchup could be classified as refined. I do still eat syrup on corned beef hash though, shrug, some things never change.
I am going to try to start sharing ingredients that I used in my recipes with everyone because sometimes that ingredient can make or break the recipe. Speaking of ingredients this is the seasoning blend that we use at our casa. It's my favorite blend. My Mom and Dad use it, my Mom's Parents used it. Heck, even my best friend uses it. It's the bees knees here at Sweet Tea.
This is an easy recipe to throw together on a weekend along with some eggs and sausage. We happen to have it about once a month for supper.
