My recipe for the best breakfast potatoes (and terrific bacon)

Everyone I treat with these bomb-ass potatoes always tells me how amazing they are and it’s a bit of an elaborate process to describe, so I decided to write it up here. There are actually two recipes in this post and one is (kind of) a prerequisite for the other, but if you’re vegetarian/vegan or don’t eat pork for religious (or other) reasons, feel free to skip to the second stage.
