When I was little, my dad and I would get up early on Sundays and make these for the family. The rest of the gang would be awakened by the tempting aroma. —Teresa Koide, Manchester, Connecticut

Ingredients

  • 1 pound bacon, chopped
  • 8 medium potatoes (about 3 pounds), peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, cook chopped bacon over medium-low heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan with slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Remove bacon drippings from pan and reserve.
  2. Working in batches, add 1/4 cup bacon drippings, potatoes, onion, salt and pepper to pan; toss to coat. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until potatoes are golden brown and tender, 15-20 minutes, adding more drippings as needed. Stir in cooked bacon; serve immediately.
