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.

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.

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.

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!
