The Tyrolean recipe we are talking about today is something sensational. Substantial and tasty, it is not uncommon for it to be served in refuges to refresh skiers between one descent and another. Born as a recycled dish, today it is a typical Tyrolean product prepared with potatoes, bacon and speck. Often it is also accompanied by a fried egg, as if it weren’t rich enough already.
The preparation is quite simple and is well suited to be served as a single dish. Basically the boiled potatoes are sautéed in a pan with speck, bacon, onions and butter and then flavored with chives. Describing the goodness of this dish is impossible so you just have to try it.
