Fried Potatoes with Onions - For Two

I don't fry foods often, but you wouldn't know it from this post and my last one.  I usually opt for a more healthy version by cutting the potatoes into cubes, adding a little olive oil and seasonings and baking them in the oven.  

Tasty -- and better for me and Cudjoe.

We were grilling pork chops for supper one evening last week, and I had some fresh asparagus for a side.  Oftentimes, that's just enough, but I wanted potatoes, and not broiled in the oven but fried.

So easy to do.  There's really no "recipe",  more of a method.

I peeled and sliced two Idaho potatoes.  I heated some canola oil in a non-stick skillet and added in the potatoes, salt and pepper, and let the potatoes cook for approximately five minutes.  While they were cooking, I chopped up half of an onion and added it in with the potatoes.  I let the potatoes cook until they were golden brown.  I didn't really watch the clock for an exact time, but I would guess approximately 15 minutes.

These were delicious!  And just enough for two.
