READY IN: 25mins


  • 1 12
    tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 14
    ounces smoked bacon lardons (or use cooked ham)
  • 1
    onion, cut into chunks
  • 1
    lb cooked potato, cold and cut into small chunks
  • 1

    teaspoons hot sweet paprika (if you can't find this use sweet paprika mixed with a pinch of chili powder)
  • 2
    tablespoons parsley, roughly chopped


  • Heat the oil in a large frying pan, then fry the bacon and onion together for 10 mins until the bacon is golden. Lift out of the pan onto a plate, then add the potatoes and fry for 10 mins more until golden.
  • Tip in the caraway and paprika, season well, then fry for another min, stirring to release their fragrance.
  • Return the bacon and onion, taste for seasoning, then add the parsley. Serve hot.
