Re:Two part Breakfast potato question
I buy frequently the frozen variety of pototes O'brien. I add onions, jalapenos and salt and pepper. While they are still in the plastic bag, I microwave them for about ten minutes. It does not cook them but it decreases the frying time considerably.
I add some oil to the frying pan and cook the potatoes on medium for about 20-30 minutes turning them as needed. Works for me and made our Christmas breakfast much smoother.
