Pan-Fried Breakfast Potatoes

What you need: 

2 potatoes (I use all-purpose)
1 medium onion
1 clove garlic
Olive oil
Salt and pepper

What you do: 

Bake the potatoes. [I do mine in the microwave -- 6-8 min on high turning halfway through. The oven is fine too. You can even use leftover baked potatoes from last nights dinner!]
While they are baking, dice the onion. Put about a tablespoon of oil into a frying pan over medium high heat. Add the onion.
Dice the potatoes, and then add them to onion in the pan. Peel the clove of garlic and either cut it up very small or put it through a garlic press and add it to the potatoes.
Let the potatoes cook until the side they are on gets crusty brown -- anywhere from 3-10 minutes, depending on the heat you are using. Then turn and wait again. Dont stir in between! If you don't know how long it will take, use a fork to stab one piece and check the bottom side. Add more oil if needed.
Turn one last time, and wait for another side to brown. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste, mix and serve with salt or ketchup.

Easy and tastes wonderful. Surprisingly filling, too. I added some cut up soy ham. Next time I'm gonna add some GimmieLean ground sausage  :)>>>
