Bacon & Onion Potatoes

Photo Credit Picky Palate

Yet again, it seems that I am obsessed with the Picky Palate. We have potatoes very often around our house and I get tired of the same 'ole drill. This recipe was great. Easy and delish!

Bacon and Onion Pan Fried Potatoes

1 lb fingerling potatoes
1/2 lb applewood smoked bacon, sliced into 1/2 inch pieces
1 Tablespoon butter
2 Tablespoons reserved bacon drippings
1/2 Cup fresh chopped onion
1 Tablespoon minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
1/4 Cup fresh chopped parsley

1.  Boil potatoes for 10 minutes or until fork tender.  Drain and slice lengthwise.
2.  Render bacon in medium dutch oven or other appropriate pot/pan.  When browned and crisped transfer to a paper towel lined plate.  Discard all but 2 Tablespoons of bacon drippings.  Place the 2 Tablespoons back into the pot along with the butter until melted over a medium heat.  Add onions; saute until tender, about 5 minutes.  Stir in garlic, cook for 1 minute then add sliced potatoes, cooked bacon, salt, pepper and parsley.  Stir then reduce heat to low to keep warm.  Ready to serve.
