Parmesan Bacon Potatoes

Jenna said that these are her new favorite potatoes. They really were very tasty. Next time we will roast the potatoes with the oil, butter and seasonings in the OVEN for about 50 minutes.  Our Honey Roasted Potatoes are done this way and turn out very crispy(how we like them).  Try this recipe tonight for dinner.  You will not be sorry!

Parmesan Bacon Potatoes

6-8 slices thick sliced, good quality, smoked bacon
2 1/2 pounds of washed potatoes, skin on
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup butter
salt , pepper, and garlic powder to season
1 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese

Cut in small pieces and crisp cook the bacon. Drain off all the fat and set aside.
Cube the potatoes in to small cubes.
Melt the garlic, olive oil and butter together over medium heat in a large, heavy bottomed skillet. When heated add the potatoes, season lightly with garlic powder, salt, and pepper and cook for about 20 minutes turning the potatoes every few minutes. The potatoes should be fully cooked and crispy but not necessarily crispy on all sides, it’s perfectly okay if they are a little “rustic”.
Remove the potatoes from the pan and keep warm in the oven as you prepare the sauce.
Reserve a few tablespoons of the oil and butter in the pan that the potatoes were cooked in. To this add the whipping cream.
Simmer until the cream is reduced by about half before melting in the Parmesan cheese. Toss together the potatoes and bacon with the Parmesan cream sauce and serve.
