Only three ingredients needed to make this creamy, very tasty potato bake ! Brown Onion Potatoes have been a family favorite for decades
Post and images updated November 2018
This is my hubby’s most popular and most requested Potato side dish recipe.
I usually parboil the peeled, whole potatoes in salt water for 8 minutes in my pressure cooker. This is about half cooked when I transfer the potatoes to the oven.
You can parboil the Potatoes way ahead of time and only finish the dish before dinner. A quick mix and layering, bake and your side dish is ready !
The versatility of these Brown Onion Potatoes are also just about endless. Besides serving as a side dish (with just about ANY meal), you can also serve the Potatoes as a light dinner.
However, if serving as a light dinner (or leftovers for lunch), add some cooked Bacon, Ham or any other kind of leftover meat.
But, I have to mention, when hubby and I are alone for dinner, we might just have a whole bowl of the Brown Onion Potatoes for dinner ! (as is – no additional meats added).
No kidding, this dish is addicting and yes, we sure can finish off a whole batch between the two of us.
