Bacon Fat Crispy Potatoes

Crispy Bacon Fat Potatoes

The secret to these crispy golden brown potatoes is using golden bacon fat and preheating both the oven and the pan to ensure maximum crunch.

 
 
Ingredients

4 tbsp rendered bacon fat
2 lb. red potatoes
2 sprigs fresh rosemary
1 tbsp. sea salt
Directions

  • Preheat your oven to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. Place baking sheet in the oven while it preheats.
  • Scrub your spuds and place them in a large pot filled with 1 inch water covering the potatoes, and 2 tablespoons of salt.
  • Bring water to a boil, then return water to a simmer until potatoes are tender but their skin still resists piercing with a fork.
  • Remove potatoes from the water and square into approximately 2 inch chunks
  • Add potatoes to a large mixing bowl with salt and 4 tablespoons rendered bacon fat, mix until potatoes are evenly coated.
  • Remove baking sheet from the oven (remember that it’s hot later, when you reach to put it back in the oven.) Place potatoes cut side down on the unlined baking sheet evenly spaced without touching other potatoes.
  • Cook potatoes for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and flip the potatoes to another side, place back into the oven for another 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and cool for 5 minutes before serving.
  • EAT & ENJOY!!!
  • Yield: 4-6 servings
