This is my most popular recipe in the world! Week after week, this recipe appears as one of the top three viewed on all my social media sites. Grenadir Mars (pronounced Grenadier Marsh) means the “march of the grenadiers” and is a recipe from my childhood. It is really simple—bacon, potatoes, onions or shallots, and pasta. Or if you don’t have bacon, try making it without and have it sweet. Just sprinkle a bit of sugar over the top. It is surprisingly good!
