  • 6 Idaho russet potatoes, thinly sliced

  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
 

Directions

 

 

  1. Fill a large saucepan 3/4 full with water; add potatoes and bring to a boil over high heat. Cook 10 to 12 minutes, or until fork-tender; drain and set aside.
     
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook bacon until crispy. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate to drain, then crumble.
