I grew up in a wonderful home with an amazing mother. My 2 grandmothers lived close by and we were spoiled by them. One was named Anna and the other Rhea Anna. And so my handle if you will is Granny Ann. Together those 3 women taught me everything and taught me how to love living life by hand. I hope you enjoy the adventure as much as I have.

Dutch Oven Potatoes - Almost

I love Dutch Oven Potatoes. And nobody makes them better than my husband, no body. He is amazing. But I just wanted a small little pan of them so I thought I would just cook them in a frying pan. Silly me. If you have never had Dutch Oven Potatoes you won't know what you are missing. After 35 years of flavoring in the Dutch oven you can't expect the same product in a regular old pan. But these potatoes are yummy in a fry pan, just not the spectacular ones from a dutch oven.


1/2 pound bacon, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 large onion, chopped medium
6 potatoes, scrubbed and sliced medium
1/4 cup butter opt.

Fry bacon pieces in pan. When bacon is about done add onions and fry both together. When onions start to become translucent you are ready for the next step.
 If your bacon is really meaty you may need to add a few pats of butter.
 Add sliced potatoes. Salt and pepper as desired.

 Stir potatoes lifting bacon and onions on top of potatoes.
Keep stirring every few minutes.Let some of the potatoes get crispy and make sure your thickest potatoes are soft but still hold their form. Do not cover with a lid, just let them fry. Enjoy.
