Skillet Bacon Potatoes Recipe

Skillet Bacon Potatoes

We all know by now that the best way to jazz up any dish is to add BACON! That’s exactly what I did with these Skillet Bacon Potatoes. You get perfectly sautéed potatoes spiced up with garlic, onions, black pepper and salt. And then you add crispy bacon to the mix for that extra savory flavor. This is one dish that’s guaranteed to disappear fast!

For the potatoes, you can really use any kind you like as long as you chop them up into bite sized cubes. I love using medley potatoes because of their color variety and small shape. But you can also use small golden potatoes, red potatoes or russet potatoes.

For this recipe, you’ve got to fry the bacon first to ensure you yield some delicious bacon grease to cook your potatoes in. I find it a lot easier to cut up the bacon into small pieces BEFORE you cook it. I would highly suggest using kitchen scissors if you have them. They’ll cut through the raw bacon like butter.
