Sautéed potatoes are a common part of the diet in the north of Ireland amongst the working class. Although normally the potatoes used for sauteing would be "leftover" potatoes or ones that have gone cold, in this recipe they are taken straight from the pan and parsley is added and this totally transforms the dish.
Although in this dish, I used parsley other herbs could have been used such as mint and tarragon and so on. In fact l think any herb could be used successfully. The herb is just to give the potatoes another dimension.
I do hope to try sauteed potatoes with dulce (an Irish seaweed) this summer just to see how it comes out!
This recipe goes very well served with grills.
By slicing and sauteing an onion until brown, then removing it from the pan and sauteing the potatoes as in the recipe and then adding the onion again you get a dish what is common known as Lyonnaise potatoes.
