I need to not read your blog first thing in the morning. Makes me hungry. Perhaps after lunch... :)

What are potatoes O'Brian? Sounds Irish!

The way I learned them was diced potato, diced onions, and diced bell pepper, fried up in some kind of fat, and seasoned and served.

Everyone once in a while I make a dish called Slop that is fried bacon strips removed from pan and cut up, potatoes O'Brian fried in the fat, then after the spuds are done return the bacon back to the pan and break a couple of eggs over the whole mess and scramble it all together. It doesn't look very appetizing, but it's good. I used to make it for myself when I lived alone, and then asked the chef at work to make it for me, telling him how to do it (he was the one who named it Slop) and then he'd throw it in a cup for me and I'd take it back to my desk. When other people saw him making it for me, they started ordering it too. If I ever write that today's fare was Slop, you'll know what I was talking about.
