Dee Dee's Stove Top Country Style Taters

Super easy potato dish I've been making for years. Just one of those dishes you don't have to put much thought into, however, it is super easy, super tasty and a great side dish.

  • 2 Tbsp
    bacon drippings (or you can use cooking oil)

    peeled white or red potatoes, cut into bite size chunks, rinsed and drained (you can use more potatoes if serving a crowd, just add a little more gease as well)
  • 1/2 medium
    bell pepper, chopped (if you increased the amount of potatoes, add more peppers as well)
  • 1/2 small
    onion, diced (if you increased the amount of potatoes, add more onion as well)

    a few red pepper flakes for heat, optional

How to Make Dee Dee's Stove Top Country Style Taters


  1. Heat oil in appropriate size skillet over a medium/high heat (I set my dial on 6). Once bacon dripping/oil is hot add potatoes, peppers and onions. Add salt, pepper and pepper flakes; toss. Cover with lid. Turn potatoes often to brown.
  2. Continue cooking until potatoes are fork tender.
  3. Once potatoes are done, crumble crispy fried bacon over top if desired and serve.

    NOTE: Cheese is also good on these taters. When tarters are done and still hot, sprinkle with cheese and bacon and put lid back on skillet. Let potatoes set until cheese has melted.
