  1. Place potatoes in large pot. Fill the pot with cold water until it is half an inch above the top of the potatoes. Add the salt to the water and stir briefly to dissolve. Bring water to a boil and cook until tender, about 15 to 20 minutes. Drain and set aside to cool.
  2. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Remove bacon, drain, cool and crumble. Leave bacon fat in skillet and return to stove.
  3. Add potato chunks, onion and crumbled bacon to skillet. Cook over medium high heat until potatoes begin to brown and onions are translucent, about 25 minutes.

Hey yo, this recipe is off the hook. It tastes great, but the reason I gave it five stars was because of how easy and quick it was to make. It is an extremely convenient meal to make and that makes it all the more better.

I made this today for the family and we enjoyed it very much. If I make it in the furute though, I will definately add some bell pepper and cheese. Excellent recipe. If you prepare most of it the night before, it all comes together quickly in the morning.


I made this using left over potatoes from a previous meal - thus I had to scale this down a bit. Also, I used less onion! This worked out very well b/c the potatoes were already "chilled" and made the shredding easy. Also, I added a dash of paprika overall to give this some color and cheese to melt over my serving. This will fill up any hungry man (or woman!)! Thanks!!
