Has it happened to you???  You have planned a great meal and then, something goes wrong!!!  The meat is not cooked enough….or, as in my case tonight, the culprit….red potatoes!!!

It was going to be a great accompaniment to a sirloin steak and grilled asparagus…these cute little red potatoes that you cooked half way, then cut in half and scooped out part of the potato….only, the potato was still hard…it was not cooked enough!!! Hmmm, I mutter….”now what would Julia do”???!!!  She’d probably down a good glass of wine, or maybe two…say a swear word under her breath….fondle the pearls around her neck…but then, she would go into action!!! And that’s exactly what I did…!!! But, I drank a negra modelo…said the *F* word a few times and seeing that I don’t have pearls, I just went into action!!!!  I figured by adding bacon and onions, you can NEVER go wrong no matter what!!! The smell and taste of bacon can cure any mistake you may ever have in the kitchecn…be sure to ALWAYS have it on hand!!!  So, this is the revision of my original plan, but everyone loved it…and the nice bottle of cabernet enhanced not only the taste of the beef but also the bacon!!! hahahaha.  Do enjoy, it’s easy and it is good!!!

So, “new revision” receipe for Parmesan Potatoes

  • 4 med red potatoes
  • 1 TBS olive oil
  • 1/4 c minced onions
  • 3 slices uncooked bacon (more  if you like bacon!)
  • 1 TBS minced garlic (from the jar is easiest)
  • Salt/Pepper
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/2-3/4c of parmesan cheese
  1. Cook potatoes in boiling water until tender…about 20 minutes over   med heat and then drain.
  2. Heat oil in skillet and cook onions, bacon and garlic & saute until bacon almost cooked and set aside.
  3. Cut potaotes in half and then cut into bite size pieces and put into pan with some olive oil and saute for 2-3 minutes and then add bacon and onion mixture and put on low/med heat for 15-20 mins or until golden brown.
  4. Right before you are aboout to serve, top with parmesan cheese and cover with lid to melt…and then voila…people will love it!!

This served 3 of us and there were NOOOOOO left over potaotes….(oink..oink!!!)
