Crispy, rich red potatoes roasted with onion and bacon. These are really yummy, and great with steak…don’t skimp on the butter.

  • 5 pounds red potatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 6 slices bacon, chopped
  • ½ cup butter, diced
  • salt and pepper to taste

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch casserole dish.

  1. While the over all taste is accomplished we are not thinking heart smart.
  2. Way too much grease. To really save cook the potatoes in the oven with just a little sprinkle of olive oil cook the bacon separately then dice it and put on the potatoes after they are done. No added butter is necessary.
  3. No need to use butter there is enough fat in the bacon(Just plain YUMMY!).
  4. Excellent! I was skeptical adding raw bacon but it was delicious! Definitely a 'keeper'!
  5. I think I used too much butter or maybe my bacon wasn't lean enough because I found them a little greasy BUT they tasted great. I'll definately make these again. If your anything like me and have trouble making all the items ready at the same time you can turn the oven up to 500F - Read more ...
  6. It was a hit with hubby. Might try adding some spices next time. garlic ect. This one is a keeper. Thanks
  7. SO tasty & a great alternative to pan fried potatoes (not so healthy) Great recipe!
  8. Absolutely delicious. Definitely not for those watching their fat or cholesterol. I added extra bacon and used red onion and the house smelled wonderful for hours.
  9. Good recipe. I tweaked it a little bit, adding more bacon and a handful of shredded cheese at the end. Defintely not for the calorie or cholesterol counters out there. I agree with the note to not skimp on the butter. Yum!
