Here's today recipe Italian Style Home Fries!


Here's another one of those mustgoes ( for those of you who are new here, the story was if you asked mom what we were having for dinner tonight she would say "mustgoes" she always got someone to ask what are mustgoes? She would say, "everything must go"!!!!  anything  during the week mom had in the refrigerator leftover would all be taken out at the end of the week. So, we had zucchini starting to get soft, peppers, and lots of potatoes in the house, it was time to make the mustgoes!
One of our favorites was potatoes,  peppers and zucchini combo's, now that'sa Italiano! Sometimes she'd add eggs to this and we would have what is referred to a frittata. At least that's what her and grandma called it. If there was meat it was added to it, like sausage or steak.
Very easy. Adaptable recipe. So anything goes, especially if you have must goes! My dad's recipe is just potatoes sliced and fried, mom added the rest!
3 large cleaned thinly sliced potatoes
2 peppers one green one yellow or red
1 large zucchini grated and some sliced
 grape tomatoes and whole milk fresh mozzarella
1 garlic cloved minced, optional onions chopped
salt, pepper, cayenne pepper to taste
1 tablespoon grating cheese
Optional Italian flavored bread crumbs
I a large heated fry pan, add 1/4 cup olive oil, saute garlic and peppers to flavor the oil, add potatoes. Fry stirring frequently till very browned. Add the grated zucchini towards the end and slices as they cook quickly. You can add anything cooked you like at this point.  You can also add the bread crumbs on top before serving.
Note grape tomatoes are cut out stuffed with mozzarella cheese  with sliced peppers on a toothpick for garnish.
