"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...

Ridiculously good! I added a little paprika and parmesan cheese and it was fantastic!

In love with this recipe and have been making it for years! Along with the garlic and onions, had some chives in my garden so I added that too. Thanks for sharing!

Perfectly done in short time!

That's a lot of butter. I cut the butter in half and cook the onions and garlic in with the potatoes. And there's no need to use two pans

Very good. Make sure to salt after it's done cooking. I seasoned with garlic powder, onion powder, paprika and when done cooking I topped with a little parmesan.

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...

These would have been great except too garlicky and took away from the fried potato tatste. I did microwave the cubed potaoes first and the texture was perfect. Just wish I left out the garlic!

These are good. But better are using potatoes that have already been cooked (baked). When I bake potatoes I make extra so that I can fry them. The taste is way better.
