Old-fashioned stewed potatoes are so easy to make!

Old Fashioned Stewed Potatoes

Old-fashioned stewed potatoes is a dish my mother made many years ago and we had it often with meals.  This is not creamed potatoes or mashed potatoes.  Mama called them stewed potatoes and that is what I have always called them, too.  You don’t add cream or milk or any kind of thickening to these potatoes and they are delicious with anything.  I can eat them with my recipe for fried cornbread and sliced tomatoes anytime.  My entire family loves potatoes made this way.

These old-fashioned stewed potatoes will quickly become a side dish favorite.

6 or 7 medium sized potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks (you can use any kind of potatoes)

Water (enough to just cover the potatoes in the pot)

1/4 cup chopped onion

2 tablespoons butter

1 tablespoon bacon drippings

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Put the potatoes in a pot, cover with the water, add the chopped onion, butter, bacon drippings, salt and pepper.  Bring the potatoes to a boil stirring to keep from sticking to pot.  Turn heat to a low boil and cook until potatoes have cooked and thickened to desired consistency.  Stir often while cooking. Makes about about 6 servings.  Enjoy!
