No griddle, had to make them in a frying pan.
Last night I cut up 3 pounds of regular white potatoes into good sized chunks, skins left on, par boiled them in water with salt, onion and garlic powder. Right when they started to get soft, I drained them, let them sit hot for a couple minutes, then rinsed them in cold water and put them back in the pot, covered the top with plastic wrap and the lid, and put them in the fridge for the night.
Fried them in a hot pan with some olive oil and diced onion, and all three pounds were gone in a matter of minutes. They crusted up nicely, but were still soft and almost creamy in the middle.
We had them with thick bacon, buttermilk pancakes, a couple different quiches, pierogies, and fresh fruit. The whole office smells like a good diner during the breakfast rush right now.
Thanks for the good advice all!
