BBQ Home Fries & Dilly Veggie Dip #CookoutWeek

 *Disclosure: I received product to sample from ­­­­Swine Dining.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

It’s Day 4 of #CookoutWeek and today is all about the sides!

Call them fried potatoes, or skillet potatoes, or home fries, but the point is, they’re delicious and the perfect side dish to anything on the grill – chicken, steak, burgers, chops – home fries are always a welcome sight!

I’ve shared a version of these before (called skillet potatoes that time), but this time I’ve tweaked the process and seasoning a bit.

Speaking of seasoning, I receive 3 custom spice blends from Swine Dining to use in this recipe.  For these fries, I used their delicious Wimpy’s BBQ Rub.  It’s called wimpy, because it is not spicy at all!  The kids loved it!

Swine Dining also makes a delicious Jerk seasoning called Jamaican Me Hungry (absolutely delicious on chicken) and Dilly Dust, which I used to make a yummy Dilly Onion Dip (for veggies, chips or fries!).

Swine Dining has a kickstarter campaign beginning on July 12th so they can expand their line, so be sure to check them out on social media below!

BBQ Home Fries

4 medium sized potatoes (I used red potatoes)
1 tbsp bacon drippings
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp BBQ Seasoning, divided, such as Swine Dining Wimpy’s BBQ Rub
Sea salt, to taste

Dice the potatoes to ¾-inch pieces.  Layer the potatoes on a microwave safe plate.  Microwave on high for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat a skillet to medium.  Add the bacon drippings and butter to the pan to melt.

Add the softened potatoes and stir to coat.  Sprinkle with half of the BBQ seasoning.  Cook the potatoes until crisp and soft throughout, about 10 minutes, stirring frequently.

Once crisp, remove from pan.  Sprinkle with the remaining BBQ seasoning and salt to taste.  Serve hot.

Dilly Veggie Dip

1 (5.3 oz) tub plain Greek yogurt (or sour cream)
1 tbsp Dill spice mix, such as Swine Dining Dilly Dust
½ tsp dried minced onions
Saly & pepper, to taste

Mix all ingredients together.  Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.  Stir again and serve with your favorite vegetables, chips, or fries.

  1. Oh man, potatoes cooked in bacon fat? Yes please!

  2. Dill veggie dip is the best! I love making my own so I can use Greek yogurt and feel less guilty about slathering it on.
