Keep your eyes "peeled" for the biggest spud on the road! Yes, in celebration of 75 years of Idaho Potatoes, the Famous Idaho Potato Truck will be touring the country! In salute, enjoy our tasty Truck Stop Home Fries made with this all-American favorite.

Serves: 6
Cooking Time: 40 min

6 Idaho russet potatoes, thinly sliced
8 bacon slices
1 large onion, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper


Fill a large saucepan 3/4 full with water; add potatoes and bring to a boil over high heat. Cook 10 to 12 minutes, or until fork-tender; drain and set aside.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook bacon until crispy. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate to drain, then crumble. Add onion to bacon fat and sauté 5 to 7 minutes, or until it starts to brown. Add potatoes, bacon, salt, and pepper; toss gently and cook 15 to 20 minutes, or until brown, stirring occasionally.
