Time can go more or less quickly though


Bacon Potatoes



Carole's Chatter: Bacon Potatoes


Apologies that this side dish – which I have called Bacon Potatoes – is so basic.  But it was tasty.

Ingredients:

A few rashers of bacon
Oil for frying – I used a mix of chilli oil, garlic oil and extra virgin
Potatoes
Lemon juice
Mustard powder
Pepper
Salt if your bacon isn't salty enough
Sprig of mint for garnish

Method:

Cut up the bacon into strips.  Fry it in your oil until cooked (but not crispy).  Let it all sit in the pan for a bit.

Boil your potatoes in salted water.  I like to cut them into more or less evenly sized chunks.  Drain them and let them sit a while to let them dry out a bit.

Add the bacon and the fat/oil from the pan.  Add some lemon juice (about half in amount of the oil) and a little spoonful of mustard powder.  Pepper to taste and check for saltiness.  A lot of bacon is really salty so you may not need to add any salt.

Stir and serve.  I used a sprig of mint on top for colour.
