I roasted 1 pound of potatoes in bacon fat (300f for about an hour and a half) the day ahead. Got them from Dragonfly Sugarworks at farmer's market.
The spice mix was onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper and paprika.
Chilled, cubed and ready to be spiced and fried.
Two ounces of extra-sharp cheddar for the big finish. In reality, I would probably double that - but, you know, with the bacon fat, butter, carbs and a cholesterol check at the end of the month, I will definitely lie about how much cheese we normally eat. See here for what my homefries usually look like.
