Is your family tired of baked and mashed? Yep, me too. They get boring after a while. Give Tika’s Potatoes a try. Potatoes, onion, and bacon layered in a cast iron skillet and baked right along with your main course. Prepare and cook in the same pan. You may never go back to plain potatoes again. Excellent served with chicken, pork, fish, meatloaf, etc.
INGREDIENTS: 4 -6 Servings
2 large russet potatoes, thinly sliced
6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 medium onion, sliced
5 TBSP butter, melted
Seasonings for top: Pepper, Parsley, Paprika, Garlic Powder
In 10” cast iron skillet, cook bacon until crisp, crumble, and set aside. With wadded up paper towels, remove grease from skillet. While the bacon is cooking, slice potatoes and onions.
In same skillet, place a layer of potatoes, lay onions on top, sprinkle bacon, drizzle about 2 TBSP butter. Repeat layers. Try to make sure at least the top layer is placed nicely, with potatoes arranged in a circle with edges slightly overlapping. Sprinkle with seasonings and the last of the melted butter.
Cover with foil and bake anywhere between 350° F and 400 ° F until potatoes are tender. Remove foil and allow to brown. (The range in temperature is varied to allow you to cook the main course at the same time). Allow 45 minutes to an hour, depending on temperature of oven.
NOTE: If making enough for a family, double everything, use a larger cast iron skillet and add a little extra baking time.
