Sizzle. It’s what you hear when bacon hits a hot pan. Sizzle. It’s what you hear when a cold slab of pure butter hits a hot pan. You get it? You think you know where I am heading with this post. There was some great love shared over my last post Hasselback Potatoes.
I figured I would use up that bag of Yukon Gold’s with some more potato passion. This time we have a fragrant, heavenly combo of maple-bacon-butter bliss. Slap a fried egg on the top and you have a warm, comforting, high energy breakfast.
A bit greasy spoon-but really quite a healthy meal. Add a side of freshly cut fruit or homemade applesauce and you are rocking out on a well rounded meal complete with complex carbs, healthy fat & protein. Eggs are a great form of quick & tasty protein.
We like to use organic ingredients in our Sizzle Potatoes. We enjoy pure Grade B Maple Syrup in the Family Fresh kitchen. It has a darker, more amber color than grade A and a richer, fuller flavor.
I know we can all agree that bacon tastes great with everything. I like to use nitrate free organic bacon. I swap between turkey bacon and pork. The pork bacon is richer & heavier. You need less of it than if you go with the much leaner turkey version.
If you are vegetarian you can use Bac-un’s instead. In these photos I used pork bacon.
Anytime of day this makes a great meal. Breakfast, lunch or brunch. We plated this up for dinner too. We are gonna love these hash brown potatoes more and more as the days keep getting cooler.
Come to think of it, they will be amazing before those active ski days we have on the horizon.
