This is what I do.It has a lot of flavor.Not a whole lot of grease.

6 Russet Potatoes: cleaned,peeled if you want.Then cut into bite sized chunks.

Cooked bacon 1/2 lb chopped up.I usually chop it up then cook it.Drain the fat.Set aside

1 teaspoon Onion powder
1 teaspoon Seasoned Salt
Dash of fresh ground black pepper
Dash of Paprika
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
Reserve 1 Tablespoon of bacon grease

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees
Cook potatoes for 30 minutes,or until fork tender and golden brown.

Mix the potatoes and seasonings and oil in a large bowl until they are coated well.
It will look like you don't have enough oil.You will.

Place the potatoes on a cooking sheet.Make sure that they are flat and not stacked up.Place the potatoes in the preheated oven.
After 10 minutes sprinkle on the bacon bits.Don't mix them in with the potatoes until they are done.
No need to turn the potatoes while they cook.

Add 1 tablespoon of bacon grease drizzled over the top of the potatoes.Cook until done.

Remove them and let the cookie sheet rest 10 minutes.By letting it rest a minute keeps the potatoes from sticking to the pan,and not break.



If your with me that's great. If not. Get out of my way.

Here are the steps for making hash browns:
  1. Wash 4 large potatoes thoroughly, cut off any bruises or unusual spots.
  2. Pierce each with a fork a few times for ventilation, then place potatoes in the oven for 4-5 minutes.
  3. Remove them from the oven and cut each into thirds, refrigerate for 3 mins. to cool. Slice one medium sized onion (optional).
  4. Once potatoes are cool enough to handle, chop them up into bite sized pieces.
  5. Heat vegetable oil or butter in a skillet (about 1/2 inch high) on medium-high heat and add potatoes once oil is good and hot. Once potatoes start to brown, add onions (optional). When potatoes are golden brown, remove all ingredients from skillet by draining on paper towel-lined plate.
  6. Immediately season to taste with salt & pepper.

Add some dried herbs when seasoning - basil and oregano are always tasty additions!
You can grate the potatoes instead of slicing them for a different texture.
Sometimes just potatoes don't get the kick? A tried and true selection is to add shredded cheese or tear up sandwich ham into pieces and throw that in there.


Be sure potatoes are cooled before fully slicing them. Steam burns can hurt a lot!
Watch out for grease fires -- slide a lid over the pan to smother them or use baking soda. Don't use water to put them out!

What temperature would that be?
Support bacteria. It's the only culture some people have.
