Home Fries/ Fried Potatoes

One of my favorite sides to any BBQ-ed meat is home fries. They are simple to make and so delicious! We love them with bacon and eggs for breakfast, too!
6 medium potatoes
Salt and pepper to taste
1 small onion
1/4 Cup chopped Green Pepper (optional)
Margarine, butter or oil
Wash potatoes well. Slice in about 1/8 inch slices using a mandolin slicer or knife. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste, tossing to ensure even coverage and to separate slices. Heat skillet over medium-high heat and; add 4 Tablespoons of margarine. Add potatoes to skillet turning occasionally to cook evenly. Add onions and green pepper when potatoes are about half-way done to avoid burning onions. Add more margarine as needed so potatoes don't dry out.
Makes 5 large servings.
~6 potatoes makes a lot of slices, but they will cook down, so you'll need more than you think.
~If potatoes aren't browning, cover pan and check to turn occasionally.
~These can be made before your other dishes so you won't get distracted and burn them. They will keep just fine over low heat while you cook the rest of your meal.
