Another Breakfast dish this week from the Cooking  Zone of the Diner, but NOT eggs this time! lol.  today's breakfast potatoes are fixed as Home Fries, which should not be confused with hash browns which are also good, but not prepared the same way.  Home fries were my favorite from my youth, and one of the first things I learned to cook as a breakfast food, along with leftover fried spaghett, which I covered in a previous Cooking Zone episode.

You do need to grow Onions also for the Home Fries, but all the Root vegetables do well up here.
