These home fries I'm about to take you step by step through are so simple and you'll want to thank me many times for passing this on to you. As it will cut making breakfast time in half.
5 lbs of potatoes (white or sweet)
oil (olive or vegetable)
seasoned salt, to taste
First peel and cut potatoes into 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch chunks. Put them in a bowl of cold water to keep them from turning brown.
Work in small batches. Drain and dry the cut potatoes on a large towel.

Spread on a cookie sheet in a single layer. Do not over crowd your pan.
Bake in a 450 degree Fahrenheit oven for 15 to 20 minutes, until tender.
Remove from oven and let cool at room temperature. If doing more than one batch of potatoes I put them out on freezer or wax paper to cool. Reuse baking pan several times.
When cool, divide potatoes out into meal size portions or put in gallon freezer bag. Put in freezer and every hour or two shake the bag to break them up a tad bit. You don't want them to freeze in a solid lump.
To use add frozen potatoes to preheated lightly oiled skillet. Cook until browned and heated threw. You may choose to defrost in microwave before cooking. Either way works great.
