Rice Cooker Potatoes

Right now, blogging about a Momou recipe is all I can think to do to somewhat feel close to my family in Louisiana. Today is a special and bittersweet day as my family will gather to celebrate my grandfather's 90th birthday and his 90 years of life...and I can't be there. I figured that since I always feel close to home when I blog a Momou recipe that this will have to do for now.

On a lighter note, who exactly has ever heard of rice cooker potatoes? That's right...potatoes cooked in a rice cooker. I have always heard of Momou's famous Rice Cooker Potatoes but could never bring to mind a time that I have had them. Well, I am here to tell you that I know now why these little potatoes are so famous. They are DELICIOUS and easy! If you have some potatoes and a rice cooker (if you don't, then I suggest you run out to get one right now) then you are in business! I know it doesn't sound like anything special but I promise these potatoes were not too shabby for Lisa! The really great thing is that you can add whatever your little heart desires to this recipe...various spices, cheese, name it! See below to find out more and I am warning you that this may be just the easiest recipe you ever did see!

Rice Cooker Potatoes
1/2 stick butter
4-5 medium potatoes-peeled and cut into small pieces
1/2 small onion sliced
salt and pepper to taste (Of course a little Tony's too!)

Mix potatoes, onion and salt and pepper in bowl. Put margarine in rice cooker and add potato mixture. Turn rice cooker on. Cook about 1/2 to 3/4 hour or until the rice cooker turns off. Stir occasionally.

And there you have it...done and done! These potatoes remind me of a zesty hash brown dish. What a cheap and quick recipe and one that you truly can fix and forget! In a day where life is so busy and it is important to save money,this recipe is perfect to have on hand. The special part of this recipe is that it is a "Momou original" written in her handwriting which means it is definitely a recipe to add to your "tried and true" collection. Enjoy!
