Potatoes, bacon and cheese … life is good!
Optional additions: minced garlic, garlic salt, onion salt, chopped parsley, chopped rosemary, red pepper. Just add whatever might make you happy! You really can’t “mess” up a potato.
Preheat your oven to 400ºF. Scrub your potatoes, cut your potatoes into 6-8 somewhat similar chunks, depending on the size of your potato. In a large bowl, toss your potatoes and onions with the olive oil, butter, salt and pepper and if you have some reserved bacon grease, throw that in as well—yum! (If you make the bacon after you pop the potatoes in, add the drippings to them whenever you can.) Scrape into a baking dish where the potatoes are not overcrowded.
Roast for 25-30 minutes. After 20 minutes, gently toss them around. After 25-30 minutes, gently toss them around and see if they are tender and crispy. If not, continue roasting until they are. Gently toss in your bacon and Parmesan cheese and serve.
Try to make extra—they are awesome for breakfast too!
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!
