Bacon Roast Potatoes by claremanson Bacon Roast Potatoes by claremanson
Crisp and fluffy roast potatoes cooked in bacon oil and topped with crispy fried bacon bits.

Today I got a little crazy with bacon! I fancied making a roast dinner, a tradition in the UK for a Sunday but I just make it when I feel like it.  I always make roast chicken but I am sure my husband is probably getting bored of the same old roast dinner each time so I decided to change things up a bit today. 
First I wrapped the chicken legs in some bacon, I was cooking a whole chicken but left the breast bare with just a little seasoning as I can't eat bacon myself.  I then I 8 rashers left so decided to make bacon potatoes.  After that I still had loads left so made my dad a bacon sandwich!

Steps for making bacon oil.
1. Simply fry some diced bacon until crisp, set aside in a bowl for later. 
2. De glaze the frying pan with some oil, using a spatula to scrape off all the flavoured little bits stuck to the pan and use that to coat your poatoes before they go in the oven.
3. Cook as usual (or see photo below for my chip/roast potato recipe)
4. Once cooked, sprinkle the potatoes with the crispy bacon and serve.

So crisp and so golden compared to the potatoes I roasted with normal vegetable oil.

Sheesh, Clare! Instant hardening of the arteries! You'll have the North American population calling for your immediate execution. Don't you realise that FAT, any kind of FAT, is LETHAL?! (At least as far as they are concerned.)  :(

As for me, being a home grown Brit, bring on this fantastic recipe. Oh, and the bacon butties as well! I render my own lard from pork back fat and do most of my cooking with it. I also use it in pastry. Brilliant!  :D

:giggle: I know right! I get so annoyed by people saying on almost all of my photos "Diabetes on a plate" etc! For me, it's all about everything in moderation, something clearly Americans have no idea what is!

Yum! Bacon butties! 

Though I much prefer sausage ones.

Oh, sausages as well! It's dreadful over here. One cannot mention lard, butter, bacon, sausages and such without being accused of trying to kill people! And yet, many years ago, I did have a U.S. magazine editor contact me and ask how I made lard and for my Oxford Lardy Cake recipe.
