"Not eating breakfast is the worst thing you can do, that's really the take-home message for teenage girls." -Bruce Barton

The refrigerator light goes on...

I started out to make this with onion or shallots, but the garlic and celery adds a floweriness to the savory bacon flavor.


Bacon Garlic Hash Browns

Servings: 2 | Serving size: about 1 cup

Cooking Time: 30 Minutes

This recipe can easily be multiplied and leftovers are fair: reheat gently.

A bowl of freshly cooked bacon. Make Bacon Garlic Hash Browns with this recipe from Dr. Gourmet.


  • 1 strip bacon
  • 4 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 large rib celery (diced)
  • 8 ounces red potatoes (large dice)
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp dried sage
  • fresh ground black pepper (to taste)

Place the bacon in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Cover and cook for 5 minutes, then turn the bacon and continue cooking for another 5 minutes. Reduce the heat if the bacon is browning too quickly.

Remove the cooked bacon to a paper towel on a plate. When the bacon cools, mince the bacon and set aside.

Add the garlic to the rendered bacon fat in the skillet and sauté 3 minutes, or until soft.

Add the celery and continue to cook, stirring frequently, for 3-5 minutes or until the celery is soft.

Add the diced potatoes and continue cooking, covered, stirring every 2 minutes, until the potatoes are slightly tender.

Add the bacon, sage, salt and pepper, stir, and cook, covered, about 10 minutes or until the potatoes are soft and lightly browned.
