Roasted Garlic Potatoes With Bacon


I love roasted potatoes! Garlic is an obsession for me. And I love bacon, of course. So when my son recently suggested adding bacon to my side dish staple of roasted garlic red potatoes, I was all over that. He helped with the prep as well, sweet boy. I love hearing his creative ideas and working together to turn them into reality!


We started by halving the small red potatoes and placing them into a baking dish. Then, in went a small sliced sweet onion. We added a full head of garlic with the outer paper skin removed and the top sliced off. Seasoning was simple – kosher salt, black pepper, and parsley. Then, two slices of uncooked bacon was added in bits and pieces, sprinkled over the dish. Kitchen shears made quick work of turning the slices into smaller bits. And then we baked it uncovered at 400F for about 50 minutes, stirring halfway through the bake time.

Salt & Pepper

So so simple. So very delicious. The bacon infused the potatoes with that smoky bacon flavor and fat as it cooked. The roasted garlic was served by the clove or two on each plate.

And on the plate, with roasted garlic:

    Sounds and looks delicious! A little bacon (and the garlic) takes even the most humble of veggies to gourmet status. I can almost smell the roasted garlic!
