Fried potatoes

COUNTRY:

These German-style fried potatoes are a close match to those found at Christmas markets. This is pretty simple. You’ve got your potatoes, your bacon and your onion – the holy trinity of deliciousness.

We sliced our potatoes but you can chop into chunks. The paprika is optional.
