Easy Pepper Bacon Home Fries



So lately, I feel like my writing style has really been influenced by what music I’m listening to at that time. I figured this out when I started writing raps about flour mixes. I only noticed this after the song switched from Manafest to The Afters.

That may or may not be an exaggeration, but I’m pretty sure it’s doing something. Maybe I’ll do a science experiment. I can write a little footnote about who I was listening to at the end of each post, and in a few months go back and collect data.


Now, usually when I write, I have talked about the food by now. I’m still going to, because you probably didn’t click this to hear about my music, but that’s just something I wanted to share with tens of thousands of people reading this. Okay, 10. And half of the readers are related to me.

Anyway, they’re bacon home fries! Originally I wrote this recipe as home fries. However, when making them for the twelfth time this month, I had the idea to add a few slices of bacon.  For those of you who don’t like cooking normal bacon, turkey bacon works just as well. It is usually precooked, and doesn’t contain half as much fat. If you want to add even more flavor, top the potatoes with shredded colby jack after they are cooked, and toss them back in the oven for a few minutes.

  1. Bacon pretty much makes anything taste better. I’m trying to think of something it wouldn’t improve the taste of, and I’ve got nothing. What a delicious-sounding recipe that would go great with a tall glass of Dr. Pepper for breakfast. Keep up the creative food blogging, and rock on!

    I like tasty food (a little too much) and am gluten free. ‘Nuff said.


    1. Wow, you do exist! I was thinking I might be over exaggerating when I said five… And I wholeheartedly agree with your view on bacon (:
