I know, its not seafood, soup, or salad… but Long Island is definitely known for its potatoes. Boiled, baked, scalloped, fried… it’s a meal in its self. Yes, a ten pound bag of Long Island potatoes, a five pound bag of onions, and two pounds of bacon and I’m ready to fight off the world.
One of my favorite ways to make potatoes is in a nice iron skillet.
So.. here’s the specifics
- 1 large Long Island potato
- 1 medium yellow onion
- 3 rashers thick cut bacon
Dice the bacon and cook in the skillet, once this is under way, dice the onion and toss it in to brown. Grate the potato using the largest of the wholes on the box grater. Once this is shredded, toss it in the skillet.
Cook all this up until the potatoes brown. Now, I like to mince up about half of a poblano pepper and toss it in when I brown the onion.
Potato, onion, bacon, a perfect trinity…
