Serves 6 to 8
Difficulty Easy - for beginners
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cooking Time 30 to 40 minutes

1 ½ pounds small new potatoes or can slice or dice up larger potatoes
2 tablespoons olive oil and/or butter or a mixture of the two
4 cloves freshly chopped garlic (can be adjusted to taste)
½ cup finely chopped sweet yellow onion
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh rosemary
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
4 strips bacon
*Shredded cheddar cheese (about 1 cup)

Pierce potatoes with a fork. Fry the bacon until all the fat is rendered out. Remove the bacon drain on a paper towel. In the bacon drippings, sauté the onions, garlic and potatoes. Season with salt and pepper and rosemary. Cover and cook potatoes until almost tender, about 30 to 40 minutes or until very tender and brown. Crumble cooked bacon and sprinkle on top of potatoes.

*Can add the cheddar cheese and cook another 5 minutes.

Or instead of cooking this on top of the stove, it can be baked in the oven at 400° for 30 to 40 minutes.
