This was great, tasted just like a loaded baked potato, used some left over cooked bacon and added a little olive oil instead. Topped with home grown chives and oober yummy smoked cheese medley. Thanks for posting

Made these potatoes for ZWT 4. My family really enjoyed this dish. They love potatoes cooked almost anyway and the bacon, onion and sour cream added a lot of flavor to the potatoes. Thank you for the recipe. The Mamma Mias!

This was a hit with both DH and I! Wonderful. I cooked the bacon just long enough for some grease to form and then added the onions. I omitted the butter and lard. I let them cook for about 8 minutes and then added the cooked potatoes. Cooked for about another 10 minutes. Wonderful!! Made for the Babes of ZWT4.

Made it as a Thanksgiving dinner side dish and it was great! I have also made with sausage.

We thought that these were pretty good. I thought that I would nuke my potatoes but I think I am going to boil them next time and go that route. I, too, got a little lost with the lard but everything turned out great.

I used 4 oz pancetta which I fried along with the onions in half crisco/half butter and par-boiled my potato slices. That done, I cleaned up my pan before continuing on. The dish wasn't at all greasy and the taste was fantastic. Made for ZWT4

I have fond memories of Speckkartoffel from when we lived in Germany, so it was a pleasure to find this recipe. I downsized the amounts (there's just 2 of us) and cooked it in my cast iron skillet on the side burner of my gas grill while I grilled some steaks. Perfect! Thank you!

This is very good! I used 4 strips of bacon, Crisco shortening, 2 baked russet potatoes and an extra 2 tablespoons of sour cream(7 tablespoons total). I think next time I will try to drain more of the bacon grease off before adding the sour cream. I think the sour cream will cover the potatoes better if there is less bacon grease. This was easy to make and it's a good way to use up leftover baked potatoes. I will be making this again. Thanks Ev for a great recipe.

I LOOOOOVE this stuff! I have been making it since I was a little girl. My sis and I thot we made it up our selves...we called it "mish-mash". LOL Never knew it has an official name. I don't use the butter and sometimes I add shrooms as well. Thanks for a blast from the past, Ev!
