"These potatoes are delicious; however, I would recommend one change with regard to the onions. Add a little oil to the frying pan and saute the onions until they are soft and translucent. If you are making Potatoes O'Brien, add green or red sweet peppers. Set the onions/peppers aside in a bowl. Add the butter to the same pan. Once it is bubbly, add the potatoes, salt, pepper, and a sprinkling of paprika. Fry until lightly browned. Add back the onion/pepper mix. Cover with a lid, turn down the heat, and continue until the onions are warmed again. Serve. To add a little more flavor, you can also saute a minced garlic clove with the onions or use garlic powder or garlic salt (omit the regular salt). It's all a matter of taste."
