for everyone complaining about too much grease: use less bacon or more potatoes. for everyone complaining about undercooked potatoes: cut them up smaller. for everyone complaining about overcooked onions (and undercooked potatoes): turn the heat down on the stove. the knob has more than just "on" and "off" settings.

Okay the flavors are great but this recipe needs a few small changes in order to work. I found I had far too much grease after cooking the bacon and poured some off before adding the potatoes and my onions burnt after 20 minutes in the pan. I'm giving this a three because I'll definitely try it again - adding the onions 10 minutes into the cooking time adding some salt and fresh pepper and more potatoes/less bacon grease. A good place to start. Read More

This is the best breakfast potato recipe I have made. I only altered a bit. I microwaved the potatoes for 6 minutes on high after I had sliced them. I used fresh garlic (3 small cloves) crushed. I cooked the onion and garlic in the grease for about 3 minutes before adding the potatoes. I added Tony's creole seasoning. I cooked for about 15 minutes more then drained off all the excess grease. Then I cooked for 10 more minutes until about half of the potatoes were browned. Excellent. I would recommend using a very good sized deep frying pan. If I had used a bigger (diameter) pan more of the potatoes would have browned. Read More

I make this all the time and its amazing but...you NEED to precook the potatoes! Boil them for 15 min., then add them to the fried onion in the pan. It won't be too greasy that way. =D Read More

These tasted pretty good but they did not get at all crispy. Also there was no way the onion could fry for 20 mins without getting totally burned so I threw it in about 6 mins til the end of the cooking time. Finally have plenty of kitchen paper ready to absorb all the bacon grease. I'll probably try this again but with cubed potato. Thanks. Read More

These were SO FREAKIN GOOD! I made them to go with out Labor Day steaks and 6 people were supposed to show up and only 1 did. Still all the taters got eaten!! I didn't have garlic pepper seasoning so I just used salt pepper garlic and a little chili to make them pretty and they were PERFECT! This is my new go-to for fried potatoes! Can't wait to try them with eggs for breakfast!!! Read More

Very good. I drained off some of the bacon fat before putting in potatoes and wished I had drained of a least half of the bacon drippings. I followed another viewers recommendation and precooked the potatoes and it was very delicious. Read More
