Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
10 Medium white potatoes, boiled to firm doneness, peeled and grated
1/2 Pound bacon, fried, drained and crumbled (reserve stuck-on drippings and 1 T grease)
1 Large bell pepper, seeded and chopped-about 1 cup, for hot pepper flavor replace with a combination of serrano and jalapeño peppers, seeded and chopped
1 Sweet yellow onion- chopped
3/4 Pound grated sharp cheddar cheese
Paprika, salt and pepper
Sauté the onion and bell pepper in the skillet used for cooking the bacon with one tablespoon of the bacon grease until fork tender. Option 2: Sauté the onion and bell pepper in a tablespoon of olive oil in a separate skillet.
