Savoury Sunday, Savoury Potatoes

     I come form a solid "meat and potatoes" background, part and parcel of growing up on a farm. There were always the traditional boiled , baked, mashed or scalloped, but my Mom had several other ways to prepare my favourite starch. This recipe is pure comfort food for me. My Mom didn't make it often but I love this stuff. It's another quick and easy recipe and uses left over boiled potatoes.

Savoury Potatoes
2 cups cold, boiled potatoes, coarsely chopped-can be skin on or not
1/2 cup of bread, cubed, torn as for stuffing
1 medium onion, chopped-optional
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon savoury
2 tablespoons butter, vegetable oil for frying

Combine all ingredients, except butter or oil, in a medium bowl
In a medium sized frying pan on medium heat, melt butter or heat the oil
Add in potato mixture and fry on medium heat until warmed through, stirring often. Approx.10-15 minutes
Serve hot with anything you would normally serve potatoes with.

     This is kind of like a stove top stuffing, hash browns, but not quite. The potatoes will brown as you cook them so you end up with golden crunchy bits, a touch of sweet and a big hit of savoury. Hard to describe, easy to make, delicious to eat. Now I'm craving these and I'm out of savoury. Enjoy.
