Frank’s home fries

Place the potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring them to a boil and cook until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain the potatoes, then refrigerate overnight, covered.


The next day, quarter the potatoes, then cut them into 1/2-inch pieces. Set aside.


Heat 1 tablespoon of the bacon grease in a large skillet over medium heat and cook the onions and peppers, stirring occasionally, until the onions are soft and translucent, 20 minutes. Toss the potatoes with the remaining 3 tablespoons of bacon grease, and add the potatoes to the skillet. Cook, turning once in a while so they don’t burn, until the potatoes are a nice brown color and a little crusty, 10 to 15 minutes.

Cook the potatoes the night before, then the day of the party, use the reserved bacon grease from the party eggs (see related recipe) to finish the recipe.
