This is something that has been made in our family for several generations. Everyone loves it. It is good for breakfast with eggs and for dinner topped with fresh diced tomatoes.

8 large
russet potatoes
5 small
2 large
1 lb
lean bacon
salt & pepper , to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

Chop the raw bacon into 1 inch strips. Cook in a skillet until crisp. Reserve 3 Tbsp drippings. Drain bacon on paper towels, set aside.
Wash and peel the potatoes, dice into medium cubes.
Wash the zucchini, trim ends, quarter and dice.
Peel onions, dice into medium chunks.
Add the reserved bacon drippings to a skillet. Heat the pan. Add the potatoes, cook until slightly tender and browned. Add the zucchini and onions, cook until tender and potatoes are done. Add the chopped bacon, mix well. Turn the heat up, cook until brown on one side, turn over and brown other side.
Note: I usually cook it a bit longer to get some of the moisture out. It is good topped with fresh tomatoes and also good for breakfast served with eggs.

Love zucchini and potatoes. Used to sneak it in scalloped potatoes when kids were little to get them to eat it. Now my daughter grows it and sneaks it in to feed her little boys!!!!! Going to try this! What's not to love? Bacon, potatoes, zucchini!

It is really good! My son, who is now 12, has loved this since he was little. I am one of the lucky mom's though, my son LOVES fruits and vegetables! I can't keep cukes, tomatoes, peas or small zucchini around because he eats them right from the garden! lol
