665g potatoes, peeled and sliced
225g onions, peeled and sliced
450g bacon rashers, sliced salt and black pepper, to taste


Place the potatoes and onions in a pan of lightly-salted water and bring to the boil. Once the mixture is boiling add the bacon pieces and season with pepper. Reduce the mixture to a simmer, cover and cook for about 100 minutes. Drain and serve hot.

A variant of this dish, includes Eggs + Back Bacon + Potatoes + Onions + Garlic


  • ½ tsp. Olive Oil
  • 3 small Potatoes (sliced into smallish pieces)
  • ½ to ¾ cup Back Bacon (sliced into smallish pieces)
  • 1 small Onion (diced)
  • 1 tsp. Crushed Garlic
  • 3 Large Eggs

Coat a medium frying pan with the olive oil and add the potatoes. Cook the potatoes over low-medium heat for 5-10 minutes--until they begin getting soft. As the potatoes are cooking, stir and flip them fairly frequently. Add the back bacon, onions, and garlic; cook for another 5 or so minutes, continuing to stir and flip the ingredients. Add the eggs and keep on the heat, while continuing to stir and flip, until the eggs are cooked through.
