It’s the little things in life that put a smile on my face. Potatoes put a BIG smile on my face! I love them prepared just about any way I can get them. That being said, these Bacon Grease Fried Potatoes are absolutely my favorite! I mean really…People they are fried in BACON GREASE! Hello! If you are a carb junkie like I am, eat and be merry for tomorrow you will have to bike, run and peddle them off your thighs. (Oh but they are so worth it!)
These are easy to make with little time. If you are wanting to serve these for a larger crowd, simply double or triple the recipe. I love to serve them warm. However if you are lucky enough to have some left over, you can easily transform them into a fabulous potato salad by adding in some hard boiled eggs and a touch of mayonnaise.
