Dutch Fried Potatoes (Gebakken Aardappelen)
photo by Baby Kato
- Ready In:
- Cut potatoes into thick slices. Heat the butter in a pan and fry the diced bacon until fairly crispy. Remove bacon from the pan and set aside.
- Place potato slices in the bacon grease, making sure the slices each touch the bottom of the skillet. (You will probably have to do this in batches.)
- Turn to low and slowly fry the potato slices until golden, then flip to the other side.
- When potatoes are golden on both sides, remove to a plate and keep warm, then quickly saute the onions in the grease.
- Add back the bacon and potato slices and carefully toss them together. Season with salt to taste. Serve hot.

Wow, were these good. 5 stars all day long. This dish was quick and easy to make with excellent results. Love the flavor of the potatoes cooked this way and of course I really enjoyed the bacon and onions. I used maple bacon and red onions it was what was on hand. PotPie thank you for sharing this lovely recipe that I will make often. Made for Best of 2019 recommended by dienia b. Thanks gf.
These potatoes were quite delicious. It took me about 20 minutes longer to prepare this dish than is specified in the recipe, but it was no problem as I started with this recipe first and just adjusted the start time of the other recipes I planned to make for dinner. The potatoes were quite moist, flavorful and quite filling. Thank you for sharing your recipe, Chef PotPie. We enjoyed your recipe! Made for Susie's World Tour 2019 (Benelux).
Made these potatoes to go with a Moroccan breakfast recipe, Shakshouka - https://www.justapinch.com/recipes/breakfast/egg-breakfast/shakshouka.html?r=1 by Lavender Lynn. The potatoes and onions fried in the bacon grease gave them great flavor. Enjoyed the egg dish served with these potatoes and next time might add some cabbage.

One of the old time founding members of Recipezaar. I live in Port Orchard, Washington. I LOVE to cook and bake nearly everything! I HATE to see people join the site, have no published recipes, but rag on another cook in a review on a recipe they haven't even tried or didn't follow. Oh, and I hate cilantro, too. :)
