Herb Roasted Cheesy Bacon Potatoes

Hi Slow Roasters, thank you for joining us to celebrate the 1 year anniversary of The Slow Roasted Italian during TSRI's Summer Grilling Celebration! Today I am very happy to be sharing these amazing Herb Roasted Cheesy Bacon Potatoes with you.  They were the perfect side to go with our Tuscan Summer Sun-dried Tomato Burger that we had yesterday.

A fast and simple dish that will disappear in the blink of an eye.  Seconds, thirds, all gone...  You bet! A delicious red potato covered in olive oil, garlic and fresh herbs.  Cooked to perfection and tossed with enough crispy bacon and ooey gooey cheese to make you weak in the knees!  I know you are going to love these.  If you are looking to add a "WOW" factor to your meal, this is it!

Just a reminder as part of our 1 Year Anniversary celebration we are having an amazing giveaway from Mooney Farms Bella Sun Luci fabulous line of sun-dried tomatoes.  Today we are adding a bonus entry.

Herb Roasted Cheesy Bacon Potatoes
3 pounds red potatoes, washed and cut into 1” pieces
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
3 cloves garlic, grated
2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary (about 3 sprigs)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil (about 8 large leaves)
1 teaspoon salt
12 ounces bacon or pancetta, cooked and cut into bite size pieces
1 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 475°.

Lay potatoes on a baking sheet in a single layer.  Set aside.

In a small bowl combine olive oil, garlic, rosemary, basil and salt.  Pour herb mixture over potatoes and toss to coat.  Place baking sheet on the center rack in your oven for 20 minutes, turning once half way during cooking time.

Remove from oven and sprinkle bacon and Parmesan over top.  Toss to combine and serve.

  3. I love this combination. Definitely one of my favorite dishes. I could (and often do) serve this for the whole meal! (Well, admittedly, I tend to throw in about a zillion vegetables when I do that and I already know what Chad would say about destroying a dish that way. ha ha) Have a GREAT day!
