Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place bacon into a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir until bacon begins to soften and give off its fat, about 2 minutes. Add potatoes and season with salt and black pepper. Cook and stir potatoes and bacon until bacon browns and potatoes begin to soften, about 5 minutes.

  • Cover skillet and cook for 5 minutes; stir. Repeat steps, covering and cooking for 5 minutes and stirring until potatoes are tender and a tip of a knife inserts easily, 15 to 20 more minutes.

  • Adjust salt and black pepper to taste; sprinkle chopped rosemary over potatoes, stir, and remove from heat. Drizzle rice vinegar over potatoes and stir to dissolve any browned bits of food stuck to the bottom of the skillet.

  • Transfer potatoes to a serving dish and top with a rosemary sprig.

Cook's Note:

To go full-potato-salad with this, just pour in a big splash of your favorite salad dressing, give it a toss, and let it cool down for one of the best potato salads ever.

Super easy recipe! I used the rice vinegar the first time and red wine vinegar the second time and I prefered the red wine vinegar (personal preference). Will definitely use this method to roast potatoes on a hot day...so much better than preheating your oven at 425. Read More

When reading the ingredients, with the exception of the rice wine vinegar, this sounded really good. Because I had limited time I quartered the potatoes instead of keeping them whole. This allowed them to get nice and tender in the short period of time I had. These were good, not great. They browned nicely, but in spite of the bacon and the rosemary, which generally contribute great flavor, they just didn’t have a lot of, how shall I say it…spunk. Read More

These were really good but I thought they would be great. I used a tri colored mixture of fingerling potatoes. Did not deviate from instructions I just expected more of the bacon flavor. Maybe I will try with a different bacon because I will make them again. Read More

We loved these potatoes. I did have to blot out some of the bacon grease - there was a LOT of grease but that might have just been the bacon I used. I could not find the little purple potatoes so I use red and white ones. The splash of rice vinegar is a nice touch. Read More

I used frozen creamer potatoes packaged by The Little Potato Company but I think this recipe would work equally well with any baby or new potato variety. Read More

I made no changes and I was skeptical while I was cooking these that the bacon wouldn't burn. But it didn't burn and they were delicious! Read More

This was easier than I thought it was going to be and was so was full of win. These potatoes are even good after a brief nap in the fridge. The roast that was made to go with the potatoes was good. I, and my better half as well, could have done without the roast. The dog thinks this is heresy and is currently protesting outside my office over these heinous thoughts. Read More
