Of course I love bacon as much as the next girl. Ok maybe I love it a little more. Any vegetable you add bacon to is going to taste better. This dish is a bit of comfort food for me. I love bacon, brussels and potatoes separately but together they are even better.
This recipe is quite simple. I use Applewood Smoked Uncured Bacon from Aldi’s. It has no nitrites or nitrates and it’s delicious, not to mention inexpensive! I cut that up into pieces and fry in a pan. Meanwhile I steam some brussels in the microwave. Lastly I put a few potatoes in the microwave and cook for about 4 minutes. Chop up the potatoes and throw in the pan of bacon along wit the brussels and cook tip they are at the desired brownness. I like my bacon and veggies dark and crisp. That’s all there is to it.
Bacon, Brussels & Potato Fry Up
- 4 ounces Bacon (I used Aldi's uncured but any kind will do)
- 2 cups Brussel Sprouts steamed
- 4 small potatoes (or 2 large)
- salt & pepper to taste
Chop up the bacon and fry in a pan.
While bacon is cooking, wash and quarter brussels sprouts and then steam for about 4 minutes in the microwave.
Next puncture the potatoes with a fork a few times and microwave for about 4 or 5 minutes tip soft.
When potatoes are done, chop them and add along with the brussels sprouts to the bacon in the frying pan. Mix well and cook til desired brownness. The potatoes and brussels should be mostly cooked ahead of time so whenever you feel they are done frying, they are done.
