I really enjoy getting to share my heart and recipes with you in my Southern Plate Suppers column in each issue of Taste of the South magazine.
Today I’m sharing a recipe from my column that makes my mornings ten times easier. I love to do this for my son from time to time. It’s a handy dandy, fuss free way to cook bacon and fry potatoes at the same time – and I don’t know about you but I need more handy dandy and fuss free things in my life! I love that I don’t have to stand over a skillet to cook this dish, and both the potatoes and bacon are done at the same time. The potatoes cook up wonderfully flavorful because as the bacon cooks, it provides the oil for the potatoes to fry in.
Now, let me show you an easy peasy way to make some bacon and potatoes!
You’ll need: Bacon, Kosher Salt, Pepper, and 2 large baking potatoes, or 4 small-medium ones.
Chop your potatoes into large chunks.
Arrange your bacon slices on the outside of the pan and potatoes on the inside.
Sprinkle a little kosher salt and pepper on potatoes and give them a stir.
Place this in a 400 degree oven for about 30 minutes, stirring the potatoes every ten minutes or so and flipping the bacon.
Once done, remove to paper towel lined plate to absorb any grease, and serve!
That’s it! Have you got your copy of the Breakfast Issue Yet? If so, what’s your favorite recipe in it so far?
- 2 large baking potatoes chopped
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 8 strips thick-cut bacon
- Preheat oven to 400°. On a large, rimmed baking sheet coated with nonstick cooking spray, toss potatoes with salt and pepper. Arrange bacon around edges of baking sheet.
- Bake until potatoes are tender and bacon is thoroughly cooked, about 30 minutes. After the first 15 minutes of cooking time, flip bacon using tongs and stir potatoes.
