Gooseberry Patch From Grandma's Kitchen. I can't bring myself to make this, but my parents love potatoes cooked this way. This one is for them.

  3. Add in potatoes and seasonings; cook until golden brown, stirring occasionally.

NurseDi - be brave and try this recipe -- it's a staple in the South and many bar-be-que restaurants have this on the memu -- I would just make a suggestion for anyone trying it for the first time -- you need to drain most of the bacon grease off.

Very Very Good!!! I have made potatoes very simular to this for decades!! but wanted something a wee bit different & this was just PERFECT Had boiled tatters in jacket for supper last night so this was just perfect timing..I had them for this a.m. breakfast...they were just plain awesome.. just the little extra something I was looking for..I used kitchen shears to cut the bacon in bit sized pieces( I only had about a 1/2 pound but was good enough for my taste) and I didn't peel the potatoes only because I was to lazy this a.m. they were WONDERFUL!! this for me was a "why didn't I think of that" (using the bacon when cooking) seeing how I have been making these well over 40 + years.. Thanks Nurse Di...
