When we lived in Rexburg I worked at this great smokehouse, then they fired me and then they sold the smokehouse and the new owners hired me as the sous chef and kitchen manager... only lasted a few months till they realised they couldn't afford to not do the work themselves and I got canned.... Oh well such is life. They got some good stuff out of me though! Here is the potato recipe I created for them. We are having steak tonight and I thought I'd make these to go along with it.
5 slices bacon, chopped cooked and drained
1/2 large onion, diced
1 tsp minced garlic
5 large potatoes, quarted length wise and diced
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp white pepper
1 1/2 cup Sprite
extra water as needed
Cook the bacon and drain. Saute the onions and garlic in a bit of bacon grease, add the potatoes, cook for about 5 minutes stirring occassionally. add seasonings, cook for another 3-5 minutes, stirring occassionally. add the sprite and bacon allow to cook uncovered for 5 minutes andthen covered till moisture is absorbed and potatoes cooked through.(add extra water if needed) might get crunchy on the bottom but it is goodness!
