Little potato pan from Nurnberger Bierhaus


2 large potatoes (russet) peel and slice about 1/8-1/4 inch thick
1-2 TBS canola oil
1 onion, chopped
3 slices bacon
2 sausage links (use your favorite sausage)


1. On grill or in frying pan, cook two sausage links, set aside

2. In another pan, over medium-high heat fry up bacon, remove once cooked and set on paper towel to drain grease, break or cut into bite size pieces

3. Keep the bacon grease in the pan and saute the potatoes, you can add the canola oil if needed, salt and pepper as you cook, lower heat to medium

4. Flip the potatoes after about 10 minutes and add more oil if needed, continue browning, and add the onions, ideally on one side of the pan

5. Once onions have started to caramelize and potatoes are golden brown, transfer to a plate, sprinkle with the bacon and top with the cooked sausages.

Serves one!
