We loved to wake to the smell and sounds of Daddy’s sizzling potatoes in lard, no kidding! We realize that this is not the healthiest way to start your day but sometimes you just got to say what the heck, bring on the lard.


4 medium red potatoes, sliced
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons bacon fat
1 large onion cut in half and then sliced
Seasoned salt and pepper, to taste
Cajun Seasoning, to taste

In a medium boiler add potatoes, salt and enough water to cove potatos to a boil. Cook for 10-12 minutes or until fork tender. Meanwhile, in a large black skillet heat the butter and bacon fat over medium heat. Add onions and sauté for 7-10 minutes. Drain potatoes and add to the cooked onions. Season the potatoes with season salt, pepper and Cajun seasoning. Using the back of spatula, press potatoes down in the pan and cook until potatoes are golden on bottom. Flip the potatoes and allow other side to brown.
