Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds baby Yukon gold potatoes, halved lengthwise
  • kosher salt
  • 6 slices bacon, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 2 tablespoons green onions, chopped
  • freshly-ground pepper

Instructions

  • In a saucepan over medium heat, combine potatoes, about 1 teaspoon salt, and enough cold water to cover. Bring to a boil for about 3 to 5 minutes or just until potatoes start to soften but not completely cooked through. 
  • Drain potatoes and pat dry.
  • In a cast iron skillet over medium heat, add bacon. Cook, stirring occasionally until it renders fat and crisps. Remove bacon from pan and drain on paper towels.
  • Add potatoes to the pan with cut sides down. Cook, turning as needed for about 7 to 10 minutes or until nicely browned and tender. 
  • Add garlic, bacon, and salt and pepper to taste. Cook, stirring to combine, for about 1 to 2 minutes or until garlic lightly browns. 
  • Garnish with chopped green onions. Serve hot.
