Swedish Creamed Potatoes from Skane (Skansk Potatis)

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by LAURIE

Swedish potatoes from a cookbook from my Swedish neighbor, Millie. These are awesome but a heart attack waiting to happen! LOL. In order to have bacon drippings I sometimes fry the bacon crisp and then crumble it over the top of the potatoes as we like the extra crunch on top of the creamy potatoes.
