Mashed potatoes with crispy bacon and green onions

Mashed potatoes with crispy bacon and green onions

Peel the potatoes, wash them and cut them into cubes. We put them in a pot, cover them with water and put them on the fire. Add salt and from the moment they start to boil, leave them for about 20 minutes.

Drain the water and add the milk, butter, grated cheese, sour cream, salt and pepper over the hot potatoes. Press with the special puree tool until you get a creamy texture.

Chop the green onion tails very finely.

Separately, heat a non-stick pan and place the bacon strips until well browned, turning on both sides. Remove the bacon strips and chop them finely.

We keep a few slices of raw bacon, we stack them on top of each other and we fry them carefully on both sides, to use them for decoration.

Add the finely chopped bacon and green onions over the puree already made, mix lightly and if we like, for an extra flavor, we can add the fat left over from frying the bacon.

Peasant potatoes with onions and paprika

Peasant potatoes with onions and paprika. A traditional fasting food or a side dish, very common in Transylvania and Banat (mashed potatoes with onions). Paprika and cumin I give them to these rustic potatoes a special flavor.

They are so tasty you can't imagine! And how well I go with pickles & # 8230 a madness! They are made in our house rustic potatoes like the gasket next to it beef broth (recipe here). Lent is eaten as such, hot or cold. Onion rings are sweet and fragrant and paprika and cumin fully contribute to the perfection of this modest dish.

Smokes (ribs, kaiser, bacon) do not appear in any Transylvanian recipe for peasant potatoes! These were introduced "by ear" by some who do not know Transylvanian gastronomy.

With these peasant potatoes are filled the famous pies on the slab or in the pan (fasting) & # 8211 see here how they are made.

Yes, in post you eat modest dishes (if you still respect fasting). No cakes and cakes prepared from substitutes, meant to fake the Divinity. Our elders ate fasting bread soaked in pumpkin or sunflower oil, onions rubbed with salt and dripped with oil, baked beans or rubbed beans, potato salad with red onions or these rustic potatoes. There were also vegetable pots (with or without rice), seasonal soups (without meat) or other cranes with sauce, also from vegetables (lecso from pepper, pumpkin food, mushroom stews). And many raw salads and fresh fruit. We are not talking now about the strict fast in the monasteries, which does not allow oil or fruit except on certain days.

And, let's not forget that in Romania there are not only Orthodox but also Catholics, Evangelicals, Reformed and that they are allowed to eat dairy products and eggs on an empty stomach. Here you can find more fasting recipes.

Based on these peasant potatoes, the classic noodles with potatoes and onions are made (cakes with rancid crumbs) & # 8211 recipe here.

These peasant potatoes are prepared very easily and quickly, especially if we have boiled potatoes in hand (from the previous day). The quantities are for 1 kg of potatoes.


Kaiserschmarrn, a kind of fluffy pancake, broken into pieces, is a recipe with origins in Austria. Known in the sweet version, with raisins soaked in rum, powdered with sugar and with plum compote or apple puree, I thought it wouldn't hurt to prepare it in the salty version, with bacon and green onions.

The idea of ​​salty kaisershmarrn, with green onions and bacon, does not belong to me, because at one point I saw a picture on pinterest and it remained imprinted in my mind until this moment, when I manage to get rid of her obsession by preparing the recipe for me. and mom at breakfast. I didn't save the recipe somewhere, I don't even know if it was in German or English, so I couldn't find the picture again to leave you a link to that site.

I really liked what came out, because such a pancake, in the sweet version is very familiar to me, so on the weekend I will double the quantities and I will do it for the whole family.

Kaiserschmarrn with green onions and bacon is my proposal for breakfast, but it also goes to dinner. If you do not have green onions, you can replace them with red onions. It will look just as spectacular on the plate. Onions and bacon are sauteed first. I finally put them over the salty Austrian pancakes. For good taste, to make sure that my boy and my husband will like it, I put grated mozzarella in the composition, but this can also be replaced by grated cheese.

It seems to me that it is one of the brilliant networks that convinces me to give up the classic omelet made on Saturday morning. It is a kind of taboo of the family, which we will do without this weekend. If you want to be inspired by my collection of omelet recipes, I leave you link here & # 8211 you will definitely find something to your liking.

I like this combination of green onion and bacon. I also use it in the omelet for myself. He also likes the omelette with green onions and dill. Mine just want the cheese omelette.

If you want to be inspired by sweet kaiserschmarrn variants, I recommend it classic recipe & # 8211 with apple puree, the one with plum compote, pumpkin or caramelized figs. At this point I realize that three of those listed were made over time during this period (end of September & # 8211 October). This is probably the month when recipes like this inspire me the most.

Kaiserschmarrn with green onions and bacon are fluffy salty pancakes, broken directly into the pan with a spatula, but there are people who take out the pancake and cut it with a knife. Seriously no need! Everything is done on the fire, breaking the pancake does not require effort or skill.

But, instead of telling you here, I better let you see in the pictures how to prepare kaiserschmarrn with green onions and bacon, and you can find the list of ingredients here:


I drank the egg whites hard with a pinch of salt, then chopped green onions.

I mixed the yolks with salt, pepper and milk, then I incorporated the beaten egg whites.

I added flour mixed with baking powder and grated mozzarella and mixed until the composition was homogenous.

I heated the oil and hardened the green onions and bacon, then I took them out of the pan and I put the egg composition with mozzarella.

I let them swell, brown on the side that is in contact with the pan, then I broke into smaller pieces the pancake and turned them to brown on both sides.

When they were lightly tanned and on the other side I took them off the heat, put the bacon and green onions over the pancake pieces and mixed a little.

I ate immediately, because they are very good hot.

Simple, quick and tasty, a perfect breakfast, but can also be eaten at dinner.

Pan-fried potato pizza

Put the grated potatoes in a napkin and drain the water from the potatoes, squeezing the towel vigorously.

Put the drained potatoes in a bowl. Add diced onions, 3 beaten eggs, 200 g flour, salt and pepper.

Mix until the whole composition is completely homogenous.

Divide the composition into 4 equal parts. Fry part of the composition in a 26 cm pan with a little oil. Level the potatoes evenly with a spatula.

Bake for 8-10 minutes on each side or until nicely browned.

After removing from the heat, add the browned bacon to the pan.

Serve with freshly chopped parsley.


Saute liver with bacon and hardened onions

Today I propose a tasty dish that I served with a polenta, sautéed liver with bacon and hardened onions.

Many of us appreciate chicken liver, even though some of us believe that eating chicken liver is inconceivable, although it is found in many dishes in various forms.

For me, livers are that delicious food with a special taste and a rich texture that makes you want another portion and another.

As I said, many underestimate him in favor of pieces with a muscular texture. But the liver is rich in many nutrients and vitamins, including B, B12, vitamin C, iron, zinc, copper and vitamin A.

If you feel like it, I invite you to stay by the list of ingredients but also the simple and quick way to prepare.

For many other recipes with or without meat or fasting dishes and much more, find in the snacks section, click here or on the photo.

Or on the Facebook page, click on the photo.


  • 700 g of chicken liver
  • 300 g bacon
  • 250 g mushroom mushrooms
  • 250 g yellow onion
  • 4-5 cloves of garlic
  • 100 ml of dry white wine
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 300-350 g mashed tomatoes
  • 1 bunch of parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Method of preparation:

Peel the onion and cut it into slices and sauté them with a little salt until soft.

Peel the garlic and finely chop it.

We clean the mushrooms of any traces of soil and cut them thicker.

Drain the liver, and clean it if necessary. It still happens to stay with iron. That is bitter and will completely distort the overall taste of the dish.

In a saucepan put 1.5 l of water to boil. When it boils, add the pieces of liver one by one, and from the moment it boils, leave it for another 2 minutes, because we will cook it later.

In a large pan, put the chopped bacon with a little oil and fry it as much as we like it to be crispy.

Add the mushrooms and continue to soften until soft.

Add the liver, white wine, garlic and mix gently until it blends and removes the alcohol from the wine.

Add the paprika, mashed tomatoes and hardened onions, reduce the heat to low and cook until the sauce is formed.

I associated them with a polenta and they were very good! That was for today, from here I can only wish you good luck and good appetite!

Re: Potatoes with onion and bacon

I also tried the recipe (with normal potatoes, not new ones) and I didn't manage to give that golden color when I fried the potatoes (maybe because they were more suitable for pureing my potatoes ?? or maybe I boiled them too much?) but anyway, it was a very successful meal. Thanks for the idea! (I like many of your recipes, and I've already tried many

Re: Potatoes with onion and bacon

the peel of the potatoes browns nicer than if they are cleaned (see here what the peel and red core look like by comparison: [link]) with spices (salt, pepper, paprika) and bake until crusty. then mix them with bacon and onion. but only for that rosy look, not for the taste. here is an example of baked peeled potatoes: [link] although they are small, they are not new potatoes.

Re: Potatoes with onion and bacon

I did it yesterday for me and my girlfriend.
It turned out almost identical to what appears in the picture

I cut the bacon strips thinner and used butter instead of lard.
I served them with summer salad (tomatoes, cucumbers, onions and peppers) and a Guinness beer: D

How glad I am that I came across your recipe. It really helped me a lot. It's so hot that I can't stay in the kitchen for too long. It's light and it tastes bad. Note 10 for the recipe. and I recommend it to all women who do not have much time for cooking.

- a large cauliflower that you cut into pieces

- a slice of bacon that you cut into small cubes

- a green onion cut into thin slices

How is it prepared

You can boil cauliflower, but it's even better if you steam it. You can improvise by putting a pot of water on the fire and cauliflower on top in a sieve. Cover and leave for about 10 minutes. It should be enough for the fork to penetrate very easily through it. Then it's ready.

Put the bacon in a pan and let it fry lightly, then drain it on a paper towel.

Put the cauliflower together with the butter in a blender and let it spin until it becomes a soft, homogeneous paste. Add salt and pepper.

Creamy potato soup with crispy bacon

A consistent, nutritious soup, perfect for cool autumn days. It can be seasoned according to preferences. The potato goes well with horseradish, garlic, thyme, sage. Ingredients for 4-6 servings:

  • 1 onion
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 parsnip
  • 1 piece of celery
  • 5-6 potatoes
  • 1 cube of butter (about 40 gr)
  • thin strips of bacon (quantity according to preference)
  • salt
  • pepper
  • nutmeg
  • 200 ml sour cream for cooking
  • vegetable or meat soup (you can also prepare it from a concentrated vegetable cube). I prepared it with parsley stalks, onions, peppercorns, bay leaf, salt.

1. In a thick-bottomed saucepan, fry the diced bacon until crispy. 2. Remove the bacon and set aside. In the remaining bacon fat, add the butter and sauté the diced onion, carrot, parsnip and celery for 10 minutes (stewed means adding a little water or soup next to the fat from the pan). 3. Cut the potatoes into cubes and add them to the boil together with the vegetables. Pour the hot soup so that it covers the potatoes well, so that after boiling it remains enough liquid to thin it. Let it boil for 20-30 minutes or until the vegetables are well penetrated. You can try them with a fork. 4. After they have boiled, put the vegetables in a blender, but only after you have let them cool a bit. If the soup is too thick you can add more liquid. 5. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste. Add the sour cream and mix well, leaving it for another 2-3 minutes on low heat. Serve with bacon chips on top. Enjoy!
