About

I love to serve these tators with Lamb or Steak. Any leftovers make excellent home fries for breakfast the next morning! Just chop up into smaller pieces and include any leftover roasted shallot or garlic. Heat up on the stove medium heat in a saute pan. Toss in some chopped green onions or parsely. Cook up your favorite eggs and voila! Breakfast.
