– Bacon – Russet Potatoes – Bacon Grease – Garlic Salt – Cheddar Cheese

Cut bacon into ½" pieces. Heat a frying pan over medium heat and add the bacon. Saute the bacon bits for 5-8 minutes, or until the bacon is sizzling and crispy.


Use a slotted spoon and transfer the bacon bits to a paper towel-lined plate to cool. Save the bacon grease.


Wash potatoes and cut 1/8" thick slices to make potato rounds. Line baking sheets with parchment paper and lay the sliced potato rounds in a single layer on the baking sheets.


Brush potatoes with melted bacon grease (or cooking oil) on both sides, then season with garlic salt.


Bake in preheated 400 degree oven for about 45 minutes (flipped halfway through) or until potato rounds are lightly golden brown and cooked through.
