This is one of those dishes that are made phenomenal by using cast iron. I make this frequently every winter and find it is awesome for any meal. You will find that amounts will need to be adjusted as the size of the skillet and potatoes changes. We add variations all the time, jalapeños, onions, sweet peppers, to name a few. We also change up the spices, chili powder, seasoned salt, rosemary, basil. My thanks to Jeff Rogers for taking great photos and his tweaks for this recipe.

These potatoes are easy and delicious. A great potato recipe for a weekend brunch or as a side dish with dinner. The bacon crisps up to perfection. I love that you can tailor the recipe to suit your taste buds. I can't wait to try this again with other spices. So good!
