Hashbrowned Potatoes

I love to re-purpose leftovers - and leftover baked potatoes are certainly no exception. Any leftover, skin-on potato is a huge time saver for this recipe. If you just have some small or odd shaped potatoes and don't know what to do with them - they'll work just fine here, too!

3 lbs. potatoes ($.65)
2 T. margarine ($.15)
salt & pepper to taste ($.10)

Cook the potatoes, skin-on, either by baking or boiling. Peel and shred potatoes. In a large skillet, melt margarine and add shredded potatoes. Salt & pepper to taste. Cook over a medium-high heat, turning every 5-7 minutes til potatoes are golden brown.

Serves well with breakfast, lunch, or dinner. To dress up this dish, simply top with cheese, crumbled bacon, and green onion.

For Potatoes O'Brien - simply cube potatoes instead of shredding, and add 1/4 medium onion (chopped) to the skillet.

Yield: 6 servings
Cost: $.90
Cost per serving: $.15
