This has been a staple for breakfast served with eggs and toast in the Northeast US for eons. (Not to be confused with hash browns) I recall traveling down South years ago and only being able to get grits, they had never even heard of home fries. Today, a friend tells me, home fries are available everywhere, even down South.
Somehow, I find this difficult to fathom, being that Southerners are just so so attached to their grits. Any input on home fries and their ubiquity?
