Oh my. That’s all I can say. My mouth waters just thinking about this dish. It’s so-o-o-o-o-o-o-o good. Seriously. It’s really, really good. I’m going to go out on a limb and say this is one of the best dishes I’ve shared. It’s that good. Honestly!
It’s simply roasted potatoes with onion and fennel. And, oh yeah, bacon. And bacon fat. Now, you know why it’s so darn good.
I watched Paula Deen make this dish and had to restrain myself from licking my television screen, which I’m pretty sure tastes pretty terrible. Instead, I ran to Food Network and bookmarked the recipe.
It makes an excellent side dish or substitution for hash browns for those mornings when you’re cooking a big fancy breakfast. And if you want to make it truly over the top, serve it with some caramelize onion dip from Trader Joe’s. I know not everyone has a Trader Joe’s in their town so you can substitute regular french onion dip or sour cream too.
It’s become a family favorite recipe. Whenever I go home, my Mom requests that I make it, which I am happy to do. I also like to make it as a special treat for a weekend breakfast. It’s fancy without being difficult to make. My favorite kind of dish!
