My father would throw this together. He used prepackaged diced potatoes and frozen onions and peppers until we turned him on to fresh. I've also see this done with boiled potatoes that are then coarsely grated & chunked.

These were delicious! I left out the green peppers and sauteed the garlic in butter. I partially microwaved the potatoes to speed things up. I used regular paprika and used Lawry's seasoned salt. These were perfect for Sunday breakfast paired with scrambled eggs bacon toast juice and coffee. I doubt any diner could have compared.

Very good. I will definitely make this again but next time I will make sure to use the ingredients on the list. I used regular russet potatoes and some inexpensive paprika I had on hand. I also did not use bell peppers because I didn't have any and it really did need the peppers. I think next time I will also use a second clove of garlic. I substituted bacon drippings for some of the butter which I think added alot to the flavor.

AWESOME! While sauting the onion/bell pepper I added a head of chopped broccoli and some fresh mushrooms I needed to use up before they went bad in my fridge. A perfect side to our chicken! In fact this was the first to dissapear. Its not the most unique recipe but that doesn't detract from its taste. Paprika potatoes & veggies - we can't get enough. Thanks Ruth!

These are soooooo good! I first tasted these earlier this week at work. I talked to the Chef and he showed me how to make them and this was his recipe minus the green pepper and add bacon. These are so yummy. He just used paprika from a giant spice container and I doubt it was Hungarian. Mmmm!

This was delicious and easy to make. I didn't have Yukon gold potatoes so I used russet potatoes and it turned out fine. Hubby and I found this was even better when the leftovers were refried. Thanks Ruth!

These were awesome. They were gone so quick. The only thing I would change is that I cut the pot. into too large of chunks. They would have gotten crispier if they were smaller. But I would recommend these to everyone.

Man! What an easy way to make home fries! I remember as a little girl my mom would make them and it seemed like the hardest thing in the world. The potatoes took so long to cook. However boiling the potatoes first really cut down the cooking time in this recipe. Oh yea and I didn't use the Hungarian paprika I used some regular paprika and of course the home fries were still delicious.

YUM! I used idaho potatoes which I opted to peel used more garlic than called for and added a little bacon grease in with the butter. These turned out so flavorful and could not have been easier to make. Loved the addition of the paprika. I will be making these again! Thanks for sharing.:)

So thankful for this recipe as I'm pregnant and am always craving home fries cooked this particular way. Driving 30 minutes out to the closest to the restaurant that cooks them this way can be quite cumbersome & costly when you crave these daily like I do! My only change was I only had russets but they cooked up just fine!
