Scalloped Potatoes Texas Style

My Mamaw used to make scalloped potatoes for breakfast all the time when we’d vist her in New Boston, TX. Granted I hopped them up up a bit with bacon and jalapenos. While cooking we’re looking for crispy brown crust forming on the potatoes.

  • 13 oz russet potato
  • 3 oz bacon (2 thick strips, cook keep grease)

  • Lay bacon in pan and cook it.
  • While bacon cooks take a potato peeler and deskin it.
  • With your mandolin shave the potato in a med. large bowl. No mandolin? Cut the potato as thin as possible.
  • Add to the bowl: chopped onion, chopped jalapeno, salt. Olive oil, and Dawgs Bark.
  • Mix the potatoes so the slices are covered evenly with the above.
  • When bacon is done remove them leaving the grease in pan and set aside.
  • Turn pan down to medium low. 250° to 324°
  • Add contents of bowl to the pan and spread evenly.
  • Let cook for 15 minutes.
  • Flip as best you can trying to get a full side of potatoes on heat that haven't been.
  • Chop or crumble bacon on top of cooking potatoes.
  • Let cook for 15 minutes.
  • Flip as best you can.
  • Let cook for 10 minutes.
  • Flip as best you can.
  • Let cook for 10 minutes for a total of 50 minutes.
  • We are looking for a lot of browning or a little depending on your taste.
  • Times will likely vary so keep an eye on it.
  • Serve with almost anything. It came with eggs when I first had it, but nowadays it ends up next to BBQ’d meats.
