This recipe for crisp, panfried potatoes with peppers and onions originated in the early 1900s at a Manhattan restaurant known as Jack's. You can vary the recipe by substituting any of your favorite pepper varieties.
This recipe comes from Casual Cusines of the World.

6 servings

1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large yellow onion, finely chopped
1/2 small red bell pepper, seeded, deribbed and finely diced
1/2 small green bell pepper, seeded, deribbed and finely diced
2 lbs small white potatoes or red potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley

1 In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, melt 1/2 tablespoon of the butter with 1/2 tablespoon of the olive oil.
2 Add the onion and saute, stirring occasionally, until golden brown and just beginning to caramelize, 5-7 minutes.
3 Do not allow the onion to scorch.
4 Add the red and green peppers and saute until beginning to soften, 3-5 minutes longer.
5 Transfer to a serving bowl and set aside.
6 Add 1/2 tablespoon each of the remaining butter and olive oil to the same pan.
7 Add half of the cubed potatoes and cook, turning to brown all sides, 5-7 minutes.
8 If the potatoes are too dry, add a little more butter or oil.
9 Transfer the browned potatoes to the bowl holding the pepper mixture.
10 Repeat with the remaining butter, olive oil and potatoes.
11 Return the mixture to the pan.
12 Raise the heat to high so that it quickly warms through.
13 Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
14 Add the parsley and stir to combine.
15 Return to the serving bowl and serve immediately.

I tend to not use recipes per se so forgive the lack of precision here. I love the fried potato taste and have had several good meals of just this. But a healthy was of doing this is to cut potatoes into about 1 inch chunks. In a bowl that can be fitted with a lid place 1-4T of flour, some salt and pepper, some grated cheese (the hard ones seem to work better) and maybe some other seasonings like paprika, basil (dried), oregaon, parsley, etc.. Toss the potatoes in this mixture to coat them. Melt enough butter, margarine in a 13x9 to lightly cover the bottom and bake the potatoes in this pan until desired crispiness. We like to use just a thin layer of potatoes to get htings crisp, flip every 15 minutes, and probably cook 1.5 hrs to get them really crunchy. 2 pans fit in our oven at the same time.
