The recipe has never been written down, so I've done the best I could. If you don't follow it exactly, it will be good anyway, as long as you add the evaporated milk!
- Two to three medium potatoes, diced
- A half onion, minced
- Enough water to cover by a couple of inches.
- One can of evaporated milk
Bring to a boil, cover and turn the heat down then simmer gently until potatoes are tender. Remove from heat and add the evaporated milk and salt and pepper to taste.
You can add other things, of course, cooked and crumbled bacon, tuna, minced sweet peppers or whatever you like, but it's fine without anything added.
A pan of cornbread goes really well with this.
