Mix or match :)
~Slice cooked potatoes any way you like.
~Prepare potatoes using butter instead of bacon grease.
~Add a tsp of minced garlic with the onions.
~Sprinkle a little parsley over potatoes, just before serving.
~Sprinkle a little paprika over potatoes just before serving.
~Serve with a side / or dollup of sour creme.

This variation of the Lyonnaise potato recipe is called Kentucky Lyonnaise because I prepare them using an iron skillet and fresh, strained bacon grease instead of the traditional butter called for in the original recipe. The recipe originated from the region around Lyon, France aka the Lyonnais Region in France. The recipe secret is to use already baked potatoes.
