These were very good; glad I remembered the bacon jam in the freezer! I'm always looking for a new way to cook potatoes and these fell right in with breakfast yesterday morning. I definitely enjoyed the depth of flavor the bacon jam imparts! Thanks for sharing, Lori Mama!

Delicious and easy! How can you go wrong with bacon? Followed the directions but my potatoes were done frying in about 8 minutes-all a matter of potato size and the temperature of the burner which varies. Served with recipe#427840. Thank you Lori for sharing.
