Home Fries

Another one from Weight Watchers. We had these for dinner tonight, although they would be excellent for breakfast! I halved the recipe for Chad and I, and I used cooking spray instead of margarine. Very good! A great hint, not just for this recipe, but others. Buy frozen chopped onions, so that you can just pull them out of the freezer when you need them, instead of hoping your onion in the drawer isn't soggy...
