Home Fries

  • Yield: 4 servings


  • 2 pounds baking potatoes, like russets, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 6 slices bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 cup chopped yellow onions
  • 1/2 cup chopped green bell peppers
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Essence
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  • Place the potatoes in a pot of salted water to cover by 1-inch. Bring to a boil and cook until just tender, about 10 minutes. Drain well.
  • Preheat the griddle.
  • Fry the bacon on the griddle until brown and crisp, about 6 minutes, turning frequently. Remove and drain on paper towels. Leave the bacon grease on the griddle.
  • Add the onions and bell peppers to the griddle and cook in the remaining fat, stirring, until soft, about 4 minutes. Add the garlic, and cook for 30 seconds. Add the drained potatoes, Essence, salt, and pepper, and cook, stirring, until the potatoes are golden and crisp, about 6 minutes. Crumble the bacon into the potato mixture and mix well. Serve immediately. (Alternately, cook in a large skillet over medium-high heat.)
