Cheesy Bacon Home Fries

 

Growing up, I always would love when my Mom would make home fries. While as a child, mashed potatoes or baked potatoes weren’t my thing, I was completely infatuated with home fries or french fries. Um, who wouldn’t be, right?

One thing my mom would always do to help bulk up the potatoes some (she was feeding a family of five after all!) would be to add some torn up bread to the diced potatoes.

I add bread to my home fries also, but not because I feel the need to “bulk” the potatoes up. I do it because I fell in love with the really crispy buttery pieces of bread that you would come across as you were eating your potatoes! If your family tends to not eat the heels of the loaf of bread, then this is a great use for them!
