1 pound of bacon
1 medium Onion
3 pounds peeled and sliced potatoes
salt to taste
course ground black pepper to taste
this is a simple recipe for hunters or working people or when its cold outside and you just want to cook something easy.
cook a pound of bacon but not to crisp. Set a side.
drain fat from bacon except for about a tablespoon.
peel a medium onion and dice it then set aside.
peel approx 3 pounds of potatoes( it does not matter which type)slice or julianne them into a skillet or dutch oven.
add the onions and bacon with bacon grease and cook until the potatoes are able to be cut with a fork.( If you let the bottoms go crisp, it is very tasty)
serve either alone or with ketchup, peppers or cornbread.
This recipe was my fathers' William J Gardenhire and we had it many times while we were hunting or out working fence line. It can be made for breakfast with eggs, lunch alone or for dinner when you have some venison or beef to round it out.
