Source: foodnetwork.com


  • 6 slices of bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces or 1 (1-inch) wide piece of slab bacon cut into lardons ( chunks)
  • 1 onion, cut into small dice
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 green pepper, diced small
  • 1 red pepper, diced small
  • 8 potatoes, peeled, diced small, and blanched
  • Salt and pepper
  • Optional: sweet corn cut off the cob and deseeded hot pepper (for a little kick in the pants)


In a skillet (cast iron, if available) cook bacon to render fat. Strain fat from bacon, and set aside. Reserve bacon on paper towels. Use 2 tablespoons of bacon drippings to sauté onions, garlic and bell peppers until soft. Add potatoes and cook until tender and crispy. Add reserved bacon and season to taste.
