I am always searching for new ways to serve potatoes. This recipe is courtesy of the Food Network's "How to Boil Water".

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 -2 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 -2 clove minced garlic

  1. Put the potatoes and salt in a medium saucepan and cover with cold water.
  2. Bring to a boil over high heat and simmer for 1 minute, then drain and pat dry.
  3. In skillet, saute bacon over medium heat and cook until crispy.
  4. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon and set aside on paper towels.
  5. Add butter to bacon fat and increase heat to medium.

Fantastic! Everyone loved these! Nice that they're made entirely on the stove. I browned them quite a bit until they were nice and crispy. Wouldn't change a thing. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

This was absolutely delicious. I made them for dinner one night and the bf loved them. Made them at a friends house, and it was all they could talk about. I like serving them with Sour Cream. I think the bf ate them with a little ranch. whatever u have on hand. I used garlic powder instead of garlic cloves just because I never have garlic cloves. I seasoned to taste on everything. Excellent.
