Fried Potatoes in Bacon Grease; Recipe

Fried Potatoes in Bacon Grease

This is one of my mother’s many recipes that I have changed a little to make my own. This dish is not healthy at all and you probably shouldn’t try it! However, you haven’t lived until you’ve had Fried Potatoes in Bacon Grease!


1 Very large or 2 medium Idaho potatoes002

1 Onion sliced

3-4 Slices bacon fried

1-2 Serrano or 1 jalapeno pepper (optional)

Ground black pepper to taste.

Salt or Goya Adobo if needed

Heat a cast iron or other large skillet to medium heat. Fry bacon until fat is rendered. Remove to a plate lined with paper towels.

Eat the bacon now or save for meal. As you can see from the picture; I couldn’t wait!

Add potatoes to pan and sprinkle with black pepper. Fry covered for 5 minutes without stirring.

Flip potatoes and cover for another five minutes. Flip again after five minutes and add onions and peppers.

Fry uncovered flipping every several minutes until potatoes are dark and the onions are caramelized.

Serve with eggs of your choice or a side to to dinners.
