While this delicious potato skillet is a wonderful side dish, we find it satisfying enough to be a main course, too. The skillet prep takes less time than it does to bake an au gratin casserole or scalloped potatoes—but it's still good, old-fashioned comfort food at its best! —Marie Peterson, Deforest, Wisconsin

"Bacon drippings are what really gives this recipe it's flavor, so don't omit!"

"tasty, except I was confused with the last step. So I ended up simmering the pot a little longer until the gravy mixture bubbles."
