  • one sixteen ounce can whole potatoes, drained and halved
  • eighth teaspoon  thyme leaves
  • fourth cup  ketchup
  • one teaspoon Worcestershire
  • fourth teaspoon pepper

What You Do 

In a  two-quart saucepan over medium heat, cook bacon until just limp; add onion and cook until onion is browned. Stir in potatoes, tomatoes with their liquid, ketchup, Worcestershire, pepper and thyme. Cook five minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add fish and cook about 10 minutes longer or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, stirring often. Makes four servings.
