What's Cookin' -- Fried Potatoes

This is one of those recipes that probably isn't that healthy for you.  But we really like to have fried potatoes once in a while.  With my daughter's milk allergy I hardly ever add butter to vegetables anymore.  This is one big exception.  She, of course, doesn't get to eat these.

Fried Potatoes
2 Tbsp shortening
2 Tbsp butter
1 small to medium onion
5 medium potatoes, sliced
salt and pepper to taste

1. Slice potatoes 1/4 inch thick.
2. Slice onion into strips.
3. Meanwhile preheat shortening and butter in nonstick skillet on medium heat on stove.
4.  Add onions and potatoes to melted butter and shortening. Stir often. Cook for about 30 minutes or until potatoes are done.  You may need to turn down the heat on the stove if it cooks too fast. 

**Different stoves act differently, so I would recommend cooking on a lower setting the first time until you know how quickly the potatoes will cook**
