Potato & Leek pan fried

Submitted by Lisa

The picture just doesn't do it justice!  The potatoes cooked like this are soooo yummy!  I hope you give it a try.  Very easy to make and quick.  These potatoes are the number 1 request of the kids.

8 potatoes washed
2 leeks (or 2 medium yellow onions)
2 cloves garlic
olive oil
2 tbsp butter

Roughly chop up the potatoes with the skins on.  Slice and wash the leeks or chop the onion into a fine dice.
Put 3 tbsp olive oil in a frying pan and add the potatoes and leeks/or onion.  I like to use a frying pan with a lid so I can put the lid on at the beginning to help cook the potatoes.

Stir them often.  When basically cooked through, keep the lid off and cook until you get a bit of a crisp edge on them.

Add in the garlic and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes.  

Take off the heat and stir in the butter and mix around until melted.  
**You should add salt and pepper as you go and to taste**

Serve it with any type of meat, we had grilled pork chops this time.  
(to change it up a bit you can add in chunks of zucchini or squash)
