Potatoes with Onions and Sour Dressing
Recipe submitted by Catherine J. Miller, Grantville, Md.
4 cups diced raw potatoes
1 cup sliced onion
2 Tbsp sugar
3 Tbsp vinegar
2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp flour
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup cream
Cook potatoes in enough water to barley cover. When they are nearly done, melt fat in a separate pan and fry the onions until light brown.
Blend sugar and flour with milk and cream to make a paste.
When the potatoes are soft add the fried onions.
Then add the paste and vinegar and cook until it thickens.
There should not be more then 1/2 cup water on the potatoes when milk paste is added.
These potatoes were awesome! I was being distracted by a chocolate milk and Kahlua concoction I had just made, and ended up not following the directions exactly. I think it was probably for the best!
Instead of putting the onions into the potatoes, I drained the potatoes and dumped them into the skillet with the fried onions. I think they got thicker this way (obviously less liquid) and were more like mashed potatoes.
I fried the onions in lard which I think added to the flavor and I added a spoonful of sour cream into the mix. So darn tasty! Oh, and this recipe does not serve 8 people….. unless the people are children or are not hungry…….
