New Recipe: Heart Attack Taters

by david on June 13, 2012

This is one of my favorite side dishes and best of all it is healthy (ha).  It goes great with a venison roast or any piece of red meat cooked medium rare.

2-3 slices of bacon per person

1 medium potato per person (more if you are hungry)

1 medium vidalia onion per 4 people

In a large heavy skillet cook bacon the same way you like if for breakfast.  Remove the bacon and allow it to cool and pour the grease into a coffee cup for later use.  Dice potatoes (1/2″ pieces) and onion.  Add a few tablespoons of bacon grease (use as much as needed) back to the pan and stir-fry potatoes and onions until potatoes are browned and almost done.  Crumble bacon and add to the potatoes and onion.  Remove from heat, cover, and let stand for about 5 minutes to allow the residual heat and moisture to finish cooking the potatoes.  If you have some Montreal steak seasoning feel free to throw some in (you can substitute a little garlic and pepper) but be careful if you add salt (remember this is a healthy dish).

See you out hunting,
