Here you go, fellow bacon lovers! I saw this a few minutes ago and it has my mouth watering and stomach rumbling. It looks so good!

You're evil, pure evil. Why did you have to post this an hour before supper. All our bacon is frozen and we are planning to have sloppy joes and tater salad.

Thanks for the laugh. I really needed that. Yeah, I'm eeeeevil! You can always thaw the bacon out overnight and have it tomorrow. Something to look forward to.

Yes, it really is as tasty as it looks.

I've made bacon potato pie numerous times, but I just use a pie plate and cut out slices like a normal pie. All you have to do before you cut into it is to just tip it sideways a bit to drain all the bacon grease out.

I love watching Chef Michael Smith's cooking shows... he makes a lot of simple down home country-cookin' type of meals that anyone toss together on a budget.

Nummies !



Edit to add: One other thing too... I find if you place a sheet of tinfoil on the top (loosely, don't tuck in around the edges) it helps to keep the bacon on top from over-cooking (getting too dry and crispy) before the spuds in the center are done.

Thanks. I was wondering if it's as good as it looks. I'll have to try it now.

bacon/cheese/taters is an excellent starting point, but i wouldnt stop there. play around with it a little, throw some other stuff in. stir fry vegetables and mushrooms would be my personal choice. round it out nicely.

Sounds like you're in shock. Take a deep breath. You'll be okay.

Also the reason why I use a ceramic pie plate (or a glass one if you don't have a big deep ceramic one) is because you don't have to bother with the parchment paper on the bottom, so long as you give the pie plate a light coating of oil.

If you use a metal pie plate or frying pan like he did though, you will have to line it with parchment.

The mushroom sounds good. Maybe put some hot sauce or something in it too. Or at least hot peppers. Venison would be good if you had it.

Yep, you can add all kinds of goodies.

Just keep in mind you don't want to add anything that has a lot of water content or you'll end up with a soupy wet mess and your bacon will be soggy. If you want to add something like tomatoes, core out all the watery center and only dice up the outer skin of the tomato and use sparingly.

But you could definitely make this into a big ol' one-pot pie meal !

Yeah, kind of like a meat lover's thing. Is there a such thing as too much meat? That was an honest question. I wasn't being snarky.

there is such a thing as too much meat. meat is mandatory, but too much overloads the palate, and balance is always a virtue in my cuisine.

This pie is delicious; and, just about everything Michael Smith makes is delicious. That being said...I hate watching his cooking shows.

For another delicious Canadian chef...I suggest the classic ..."The Urban Peasant" starring James Barber.






PS - James Barber was a gentleman and a scholar. He died in 2007. I think everyone should cook one of his recipes and pour a little wine for him. The Urban Peasant - Our Dead Homie.

YUM! That does indeed look like heaven on earth.
I would make it tonight but my Beloved is allergic to cheese----sigh---the bane of my existence sometimes---how to make these delicious dishes without using cheese....

To me it just begs for a layer of onions with the taters.

Too bad your beloved can't eat any. I really don't know what you could substitute for the cheese.
