Mom's Fried Potatoes and Onions

Mom's Fried Potatoes and Onions
While we were cooking these potatoes, we thought there was too much oil. But, once the potatoes are softened they absorb all the flavor from the butter and oil and caramelize beautifully. This is an old-fashioned recipe that reminds us of cooking in the kitchen with Grandma. They're almost like hash browns but without shredding or dicing the potatoes. Once fried, the potatoes are a little crisp outside and soft inside. Onions add tons of flavor. A delicious side dish you could serve at breakfast or dinner.
