Yummy home fries. I skipped the butter, and increased the chives and parsley. An enjoyable meal.
Very fresh flavor on these potatoes with all the fresh herbs. I did decrease the amount of oil/butter I used since the bacon makes so much grease. I also wasn't watching the clock when boiling my spuds so they were a little mushy, but not too bad. Made for Best of 2012 Cookbook Tag.
Oooohhhhhh la la! These potatoes were magnifique! Seriously good side dish here (so good, I could eat it as a main dish). I did let my potatoes boil longer than 5 min. which was a mistake on my part. It made my taters a bit mushy, but still tasty. I won't make that mistake again! The herb blend was perfect together and I happily grow them all in my garden! Made for ZWT8 France. Merci! P.S. This is going into my best of the best cookbook.
