Who doesn’t love potatoes? I found these micro potatoes the other day and I love them. I don’t know if I love them because of their size or just how fun they are but they are a new staple in my house.

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 400°F – The reason we transfer the potatoes is because it allows for them to continue to cook and gives the outside a slight crispy edge without causing them to wilt.
  • Place skillet on stove over medium heat. Once hot, add olive oil, potatoes, salt and pepper. I don’t recommend using butter as a substitute because it can burn too easily and change the taste of the potatoes.
  • Stir and cook for about 10 minutes until the potatoes start to get soft and slightly brown on the outside.
  • Add sliced onion and bacon bits and take of heat. Stir and carefully transfer to the oven. Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes. Stirring half way through. You don’t want to add these too early because it will overcook the onions and burn the bacon. I choose to use bacon bits so that the potatoes are not as greasy. Some choose to cook potatoes right in the bacon grease but I don’t do this for two reasons: 1) The nibbles are so small so they end up getting very greasy which can be messy and 2) Olive oil fat is healthier than bacon fat. Although, some don’t believe in cooking olive oil at these temperatures.
  • Once the potatoes are done, you can serve in skillet or transfer. I would recommend transferring to a new dish if you have company over because the skillet will be very hot and you don’t want your guest to accidently touch it… because they will.
  • CAUTION: Do not touch the skillet with bare hands, it is hot. Don’t place skillet on counter or table without something under it. It can damage your counter and table depending on the material.
