This Roasted Potatoes with Bacon & Parmesan recipe is courtesy of Souffle Bombay. With bacon, potatoes and parmesan in the recipe name, need we say more? We just love this simple and inviting recipe and think you will, too!
6 large Potatoes (skin on)
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoons melted butter
Kosher salt & pepper (season well)
4 slices of crispy bacon (reserve drippings)
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
Prep Time: 15min | Cook Time: 30min
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Scrub your potatoes. Depending on the size of your potato, cut your each one into 6-10 similar sized chunks. In a large bowl, toss your potatoes and onions with the olive oil, butter, salt and pepper and if you have some reserved bacon grease, throw that in as well. If you make the bacon after you pop the potatoes in, add the drippings to them after you do so. Scrape the potato mixture into a baking dish where the potatoes are not overcrowded and roast for 25-30 minutes.
After 20 minutes, gently toss them around. After 25-30 minutes, gently toss them around and see if they are tender and crispy. If so remove from the oven. If not, continue roasting until they are.
Gently toss in your Parmesan cheese and serve.
PS: Make extra…they are awesome for breakfast too!
Optional additions: minced garlic, garlic salt, onion salt, chopped parsley, chopped rosemary, red pepper. Just add whatever might make you happy! You really can’t “mess” up a potato.
