I prefer firm, fleshy potatoes like Yukon Gold, and don't waste the peel that has the flavor and the vitamines, so I just boil them for 2-3 minutes, and slice them really thin.


I also put paper thin slices of onion in there.
The franks or Wieners don't need to be boiled at all. They have been boiled at the factory. Just slice them thin and toss them in.
However, the Knorr Aromat has MSG, or used to, so I avoid that. Seasoned salt with garlic works very well.
Instead of the expensive cooking spray I just put a knife tip of butter into the pan. Tastes a lot better!
Have FUN!
