Easy potatoes with great flavor.
Cook sliced bacon in a large cast iron skillet over medium heat until crisp. Transfer crispy bacon bits to paper towels to drain using a slotted spoon. Reserve 2 tablespoon of bacon fat in the pan, discarding the rest.
Sauté sliced shallots for about 2-3 minutes until wilted, then add potatoes, sage leaves, softened butter, salt, and pepper and gently toss to coat.
At this point, you can finish cooking by roasting in the oven at 375ºF for about 45 minutes until potatoes are done. If you don’t want to heat up the house during summer, simply loosely cover the iron skillet with foil and place the skillet near the hot coal but not directly over the heat source, and close the grill cover. Cook for about 45 minutes or until fully cooked, stirring occasionally to ensure potatoes are not too dark.
Sprinkle more salt and pepper, bacon bits, and extra sage leaves. Serve immediately.
There are two keys to turning out good potato croquettes every time. The first, a well-proportioned balance of flour, egg and potato. The second necessity is oil heated sufficiently for deep frying them. The recipe given here ended the diplomatickitchen’s search for one that would turn out excellent croquettes on a regular basis.
This dish is perfect for BBQ season. Because it can be served hot or at room temperature, it travels well.
This recipe serves 4 to 6.
By the way, I like to serve these for the holidays as well!
