This is not the healthiest dish, although it is delicious. For the people who do not like them, the onion is optional. I make it for my family often and the restaurant I work at changed their recipe to this! Add diced tomatoes alongside the onion and garlic for a tasty addition.

Why the separate skillets for the onions and garlic? Cook them together for the most flavor - just don't put the garlic in until the potatoes are getting close to done. The onions get a little browned and crunchy and make this dish beyond yummy.
Been doing basically this forever. Learnt from my Mom who had a tight budget and little time. If boiling potatoes the first night she cooked extra. Next night cubed and fried them with onion garlic and Thyme. As they were already cooked they needed less butter. We fried them till potatoes were golden then added bread crumbs to soak up extra butter. Cooked till we scraped the pan. Optional sprinkle of paprika or cayenne for colour. Great.
