Hard work pays off!
It’s mid August and it’s potato digging time here in Ohio. If you have never had fresh dug potatoes… here is your chance. The Pearl Market farmers are bringing these beauties right to you.
Leeks and Onions
Or if starting from scratch, microwave or boil the potatoes till just tender
1 fresh leek (sliced thin)
½ red onion (sliced thin)
3-4 tablespoons butter
3-4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
In a medium size iron skillet melt the butter over medium to high heat; add the sliced potatoes in layers, salt and pepper and fry for 15-20 minutes till golden brown.
Remove iron skillet from heat and place a heavy plate over the skillet; using heavy oven mitts flip skillet over and allow the potatoes to rest onto the plate; top with the fried leeks and onions.
Yields 4-5 servings
