CSA for breakfast: Russet Potatoes sauteed in bacon fat

21 Feb

This is a little time-intensive, but worth it for lazy breakfast days if you’re so lucky to have them.  Man-friend and I were so fortunate on this Washington’s birthday, and we made some awesome breakfast potatoes, sauteed in bacon fat, then dusted with some salt and finely chopped rosemary.

I cut up 2lbs of russet potatoes into 1-inch chunks and sauteed 5 strips o bacon without any extra oil.

Next step is to take out the bacon and fry the potatoes in the bacon fat for about 25 minutes.

Happiest potatoes EVAR!

Man-friend made these in two batches.  There was plenty of bacon fat to go around.

Done.

Done.

When they were done frying (about 25 minutes per batch), we tossed them with a few pinches of salt and about a teaspoon of finely chopped fresh rosemary.  Yes, I know you’re smelling that now.

Breakfast!  Ohhh hello, leftover harissa from last night's turnips & radishes...
