Step 5: potatos part 2

By now the potatos have cooled down enough to handle and its time to smash them and brown them, its as easy as it sounds, just press down on the potato until it flattens then put in the hot bacon grease, repeat until the skillet is filled with potatos, allow them to cook for 6-8 minutes and then, drizzle more bacon grease on the top and carefully flip to brown the other side, scatter your already browned onions on the top, sprinkle on the crumbled bacon and top with shredded cheese. ( I used chedder cheese but I think next time I'll try crumbled blucheese) You can remove from the heat and let the residual heat in the pan finish melting the cheese like I did or pop the skilklet in the oven to brown the cheese
Very good recipe!
thank you
Hey l8nite,<br><br>I like your straightforward recipes, in this one though, on the salt, when you say, &quot;5 handfuls&quot;, what would you say (wild, ballpark, guess) that would be in maybe tablespoons, or quarter-cups, or whatever? <br><br>Thanks again for the interesting ideas!<br><br>cheers
I'm glad you like my recipes, I don't think of myself as a cook or chef, just a dad who enjoys eating and who has learned over the years how to make inexpensive dishes tasty, of course some of my experiments in the kitchen have been less than well received (LOL) <br> <br>If you look under the supplies, I put about a cup of salt, which is about 5 good palm fulls for me. As this was the first time I made these it was just a guess on my part, ( I thought that was a LOT of salt) in retrospect I could have doubled or even tripled the amount of salt, the cooked potatoes should have an almost white crust of salt when cooled. Of course you don't have to salt them much at all if you don't want or add gralic to the water or use cannola oil instead of bacon grease. <br> <br> If you do make these please let me know along with and changes you made or would make for the next time
