So, I have a new-ish boyfriend who loves the fact that I can make American style breakfast/brunch foods (pancakes etc.). He has raved a number of times about a food called 'home fries' he has had in the US; I want to make them for him but I have never had them or made them before. What is your favourite recipe for this dish? There is a recipe in Veganomicon but it is very simple - is that how they are meant to be? What makes me concerned to get it right is that he has commented that he had home fries in the UK once in an 'American diner', but they were awful.
Second, related, question - what do you serve them with? He is a very mellow omni, and very supportive/interested in veganism, but I don't want to give him something too 'weird' (no vegan cheese sauce etc.).
