Butter Fried Potatoes


These fried, diced potatoes are not the healthiest dish, although it is delicious. The onion is optional for people who do not like them. I make this dish 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.
