Ready In:
2 cups potatoes


  • 2 cups potatoes, cooked (See note at bottom)
  • 6 slices bacon, chopped
  • salt, pepper, and paprika to taste


  • Cut up 6 slices of good thick smoked bacon. Put in pan till halfway cooked. Add 2 cups diced or thinly sliced potatoes. Cook until nicely browned. Season to taste.
  • If you do not want the bacon with the potatoes, simply remove them after they are cooked and then add the potatoes to the bacon grease.
  • Note: Boil potatoes in water till fork tender. You may keep the skins on or simply peel after they are cool enough to handle.
  • Boiled potatoes and raw potatoes have a different taste when they are fried. I love them both, and it's your own personal preference what you choose.

    I made these to go along with some glazed smoked sausage bites for mine and DH's lunch today and it was a perfect match!!! I loved the added flavor of bacon to the potatoes. I just added a bit of sea salt and pepper and that was all they needed for us. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for your win in the football pool, congrats!!!

    Great potatoes! I too boiled mine first, let them cool, sliced them, and then added them to the skillet. So simple but so good. Thanks CJAY for a nice treat. Made by an Unruly Under the Influence for ZWT6.

    I agree with alli- great flavor, little effort. I used raw diced potatoes, and turkey bacon. Finished them off with a little coarse salt and smoked paprika- really nice compliment to Recipe #89054. Made for German/ Benelux Region in ZWT 6.

    Such flavor, for minimal effort! I did boil my potatoes (maybe for a bit too long) and drained and cooled them before adding to the skillet with the bacon and drippings. I used salt and pepper and was very pleased with the outcome. Simple quick side dish, perfect for a week night! Thanks for sharing, CJAY! Made for ZWT 6.
