Breakfast Potatoes that will have your mouth watering!

Breakfast Potatoes.

Is there really anything better than a bowl full of these delicious caramelized babies.

The key ingredient to these is not just that it has bacon which in my opinion can make anything GREAT… but that it has maple syrup added in it at the end of the cooking process.

So simple. So Easy.  So Tasty!

You don’t have to make these just for breakfast… they can be eaten any time of the day… lunch, dinner or even a snack.  Just know that they’ll be devoured no matter what time of day it is.
