  • 1 pound red potatoes

  • ¼ cup olive oil

  • ¼ cup diced bacon

  • ¼ cup diced red bell pepper

  • ¼ cup diced red onion

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh chives

  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme


  1. Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until just tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Don't overcook, as they will be difficult to saute. Drain. Let cool in the refrigerator for 8 hours, or overnight. Leave the skins on, as they add color and flavor.

  2. Cut potatoes into bite-sized pieces.

  3. Heat a large saute pan over high heat until very hot. Add olive oil; add potatoes when oil begins to smoke. Saute until they start to brown. Add bacon and saute until golden. Add onions and peppers and saute for 1 minute. Remove from heat. Season with salt and pepper and garnish with chives and thyme.
