One of the easiest side dishes to make is fried potatoes. I scrub 5-7 potatoes (depends on the size) and then chunk them. I usually leave on the skin but you can take it off if you choose. Add them to a hot skillet that has been about 1 TBL of hot vegetable oil in it. Fry up the potatoes--stirring occasionally. When they are brown, they're done :) Add shredded cheese if you choose.
