DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the bacon in a 10-inch frying pan over medium heat until the fat runs, 2-3 minutes.
  • Do not let them brown; remove them with a slotted spoon and set aside.
  • Heat the vegetable oil in the pan; add the potatoes and sprinkle them with pepper (the bacon may contribute enough salt).
  • Decrease heat to low, cover, and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the bacon and continue to cook, uncovered, over low heat, tossing or stirring often, until the potatoes are tender and some are browned, 20-25 minutes.
  • Don't worry it some of them are crusted, as they will help hold the mixture in a cake.
  • Stir in the cheese; taste, and adjust the seasonings.
  • Press down on the potatoes to level them in the pan.
  • Increase heat to high and let them cook without stirring until the bottom is browned, 3-5 minutes.
  • Press on the cake occasionally to hold it together.
  • When done, it should be brown around the edges and starting to pull from the sides of the pan.
  • Take the pan off the heat, run a knife around the edges to loosen the cake, and turn it out onto a warmed plate; serve hot.
