1 pound potatoes
1/2 stick butter (or 4 tablespoons olive oil)
1 large onion, sliced thin
1 green bell pepper, chopped
salt and pepper, to taste


Wash, scrub, and quarter the potatoes but do not peel. Boil until just done, then drain and chill. (This is best done the night before, for a breakfast meal.) Heat butter or oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Saute the onion and pepper until just sizzling. Cut the potatoes into bite-size chunks and add to the pan. Stir-fry until potatoes are golden. Season and serve hot.
