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.

Maple Bacon Sizzle Potatoes

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

Maple Bacon Sizzle Potatoes

Ingredients

  • 3 medium sized potatoes, cleaned & cut into 3/4 inch cubes (I like Yukon Gold potatoes)
  • 2 tablespoons Butter or Ghee
  • 2 tablespoons pure Maple Syrup
  • pinch of ground Cinnamon
  • pinch of ground Ginger
  • pinch of Salt
  • 1-3 ounces of nitrate free Turkey Bacon or Pork Bacon, cooked and crumbled (see note above)
  • optional: serve with a oozy pan fried egg or scrambled eggs

Method

  • Clean and dice potatoes. In a large skillet (or cast iron pan) cook bacon until browned & cooked through. Drain and cool on paper towels. Crumble bacon and set aside. Melt butter in the same skillet, you can get rid of most of the bacon fat if you want to keep this dish lighter. Brown potatoes in the skillet for a few minutes until they are cooked through. Mix them a occasionally to cook evenly. Add maple syrup, salt, cinnamon and ginger to potatoes. Combine thoroughly. Take skillet off heat, transfer to a heat resistant bowl and gently toss potatoes with bacon crumbles.
  • Top with a fried egg.

I have never thought to add sweet ingredients to potatoes, but it sounds tasty ;)

We love potatoes with our eggs and make ‘super eggs’ all the time – a mish mash of potatoes, eggs and random cheesy goodies.

I think my husband would freak if I won a smoker!

We loved all foods smoked – and I had no idea you could buy a smoker for 300 – that is a great deal!
Vanja’s dad has a smokehouse in Bosna and smokes his own meat. SO, Should I win, I imagine you cannot send to Canada, but my daughter lives in Palo Alto and would love a smoker…. so I will defer my winnings to her. Nothing like thinking positive, eh, Marla!
Love the Twitter idea. Good for the two of you!

I just “liked” you on Facebook. This recipe sounds yummy, I made some fried potatoes with crumbled local sausage and eggs for breakfast yesterday. Bacon would have been yummy too. The smoker would be a really cool thing to win, I would sure be popular on Saturday afternoons around here if I had one!

I could eat hashbrowns at every meal. I like the idea of smoking a turkey for Thanksgiving. I can’t even imagine how delicious that would taste!

Sounds delicious. I love the idea of serving the HBs in a small bowl with the egg on top. Then it all mushes together when eating. Yum!

I am a simple girl when it comes to hashbrowns, typically. Salt/pepper only. But, love the maple addition here. With the spices? Perfect for fall!

I want this smoker big time! Every year, my hubs goes Salmon fishing and comes home with about 100 pounds of salmon, which I don’t like – unless it’s smoked! You’d save me a lot of choking down salmon dinners if I could smoke them with this bad boy first!

I could live on breakfast for dinner, especially potatoes and eggs. I’ve never made potatoes with maple syrup, cinnamon, and ginger but I bet it is divine with the bacon. If I don’t win the smoker, I still walk away with a great recipe!

172 comments!!! Holy CRAP! That is a lot of traffic, Marla! Anyway, you wrote about only liking YOUR own cranberry sauce – would you be so kind to go back to the comments and write what it is? I am truly interested and want the conversation inside of the comments area to carry those great ideas. And, just below it – is the turkey stuffing post and I am asking my readers to do the same with that – and I am very curious about how you make yours the “healthy” way – or, if you just make it traditionally, as it is a holiday. Anyway, should you have the time… I would really appreciate it.

I’ve been eyeing this smoker for a good long while. I want it so I can make good, Texas-style smoked brisket like we make at home. And you know what? Your potatoes would be a great side for that, since I don’t like potato salad.

My husband is a smoking fool. We currently are harboring a 5-pound brisket and about 5 racks of ribs, and that doesn’t even get into the meat he’s storing in the freezer for later. Ole has been crafting his own smokers out of drums (Ugly Drum Smoker), but, um, it’d be nice to have something a bit less…well, ugly.
