Extended Shelf Life for: Potatoes and Peppers This is another dish that well, seems silly to break down into ingredients and directions. For goodness sakes, we made it while at the cabin for Spring Break, which mostly entails trial and error anyway. So, to begin, dice up some potatoes and begin frying them in 1-2 Tbsp. of oil, cast iron skillet works wonders if you have one. Once potatoes are mostly done, add diced peppers, onions, garlic, salt and pepper, etc. Cook until it exudes perfection and tastiness. Fry up an egg, serve on top and let the yolk take over.
