Bacon Potato Hash and Baked Zucchini Spears

If you're looking for a quick dinner, try this bacon, potato, and corn hash.  It's delicious and easy to make.

The recipe is easy.  Here's what you need:

corn (frozen or fresh, canned corn is the devil)

1. Cut the bacon into big pieces, and start cooking it in a skillet (we like cast iron).  When the bacon starts rendering fat out, add the potato (cut into pieces).  Let the potatoes get nice and golden brown on all sides.

2. Season to taste.  We like salt, pepper, and rosemary. 

3. When the potatoes are just about done, add the corn and cook for a few more minutes until the corn is heated through. 

The bacon should give off enough fat to cook the potatoes, but if you use a lot of potatoes you can add more fat to the pan. We like lard the best, and potatoes roasted in lard are so delicious.  You can also use butter, or oil if you must.  There aren't any quantities in my recipe, because you can use as much or as little of each thing as you want. We usually cook a pound of bacon, about 6-8 large potatoes, and a good bit of corn. 

As a side dish tonight, I made these zucchini spears I found on Pinterest. 

They're incredibly easy too.  You'll need:

zucchini (imagine that)
parmesan cheese
an egg

In a small bowl, make an egg wash by scrambling one egg with a little water (maybe a Tbsp or two). In a separate small bowl, mix parmesan cheese with salt, pepper, and whatever other spices you want (I added a bit of garlic powder).  Cut zucchini into spear shapes.  Dip zucchini in egg wash, roll in cheese mix, and put on lightly greased cookie sheet.  Bake at 375 until cheese is golden brown.  Again, quantities depend on how much you want to make.  You can't get easier than that!
