Preparation: Slice the bacon into medium sized strips and add to a pan. Fry on a low heat for around 7-8 minutes, turning mid-way. There should be no need for any oil as the bacon will fry in its own fat.

Slice the potatoes and add to the pan containing the bacon. Arrange the potatoes so that they will fry in the bacon fat. Fry until golden brown. Stir occasionally to ensure that the potatoes fry evenly. If the bacon fat is insufficient to fry the potatoes, add a little oil.
