  • 4 slices bacon lean, cooked and crumbled
  • ¼ cup bacon fat reserved from cooking of bacon
  • 6 medium potatoes yellow or red, chopped in ¾-inch pieces
  • 2 Tbsp rosemary fresh, or 2 teaspoons dry rosemary
  • 1 Tbsp garlic minced (about 2 large cloves)
  • ½ tsp salt more to taste
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • ¼ cup parsley fresh, chopped


  • Cook bacon.
  • Meanwhile, cut potatoes and mix in a large bowl with rosemary, garlic, salt, black pepper, and parsley.
  • Once bacon is done and crispy, remove to a plate to cool.
  • With remaining bacon fat in the pan (approximately ¼ cup), turn heat to medium. Make sure to watch the pan, as it can get smoky.
  • Once it's good and hot, you will carefully add the seasoned potatoes.
  • The pan will likely spit and hiss (or otherwise have a "hissy fit"), so stay back while adding the potatoes. It will settle down pretty quickly.
  • Once the hissy fit subsides, you can stir the potatoes around with a spatula to evenly coat them with the bacon fat.
  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Cook potatoes for 10 minutes while oven is heating up, stirring often. Crumble the bacon and add to the potatoes, stirring in.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until desired brownness.
