I rate these a 5 on taste, but a 3 on preparation. After I flattened the potatoes and got the first side cooked, I wondered, "How am I going to flip this thing?" There was a good bit of bacon grease still in the skillet, which I didn't want to splatter everywhere when I flipped it. I drained off the grease into a bowl, inverted a dinner plate over the skillet, turned the skillet upside-down so the potatoes were now on the plate, then poured the grease back into the skillet, and slid the potatoes off the plate back into the skillet. Will definitely reduce the salt next time as they were rather salty. Thanks for posting! Made for 2008 All New Zaar Cookbooks Tag.
