6 potatoes? Really? I actually only used 3 and even then by the time I realized there was way too much potato then egg it was already too late. 6 potatoes? There's like 45 times more potato than egg in that recipe. Try it if you want but use like 1 potato MAX!

First, just replace the lard with butter. Second, you need to cook the potatoes at least 6 minutes so they are brown and tender. Other that that, good recipe.

Could I replace the lard with canola oil? It's not that I'm afraid of lard... it's just that we don't have any.

This is one of my husband's favorite breakfast foods. The recipe is fast. We sometimes add bacon or some other chopped meat and serve with hot sauce in a tortilla.

Why are you people so afraid and sickened by lard? Here's some news for you... lard ie. pig fat is used to make soap. And to the guy that says lard is some kind of culturally offensive thing, you're comment offends me. Lard is used all the time in Mexico and China, and we use it in Georgia, USA to make the best biscuits you'll ever taste. And if you call my grandmother's biscuit recipe culturally offensive, then you're a dick.

Oh my god you should promoting healthier alternatives then LARD. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and from all people you should know that. Why do you want to taint the most important meal of the day with that turd for oil "lard".
