Easy German Potatoes with New Potatoes

Easy German Potatoes with New Potatoes

Just 15 minute prep?! Even though this dish is so easy to make, it's quite extravagant. You'll become addicted to this flavor.

Ingredients: 2-3 servings

Potatoes
5 small
Onion
1/2
Bacon
4-6 slices
★Salt and pepper (or Krazy Salt)
a small amount
★Dried basil
a small amount
★Dried parsley
a small amount
★Garlic powder (or fresh garlic)
a small amount

Steps

1. Since I used new potatoes, all I had to do was wash them. Use a scrubbing brush to thoroughly get rid of all the dirt. The right potato is before I washed it, the left potato is after.
2. Cut the potatoes into 4-6 pieces and microwave at 600 W for 5-6 minutes. (Cover them with plastic wrap so that the moisture doesn't evaporate.)
3. Slice the onion as shown in the photo. (Slice against the grain.)
4. Cut the bacon into pieces as shown in the photo. (If you want larger slices, feel free to slice it up larger.)
5. Heat olive oil in a frying pan and cook the bacon until crispy. Add the onion and cook until tender. Add the microwaved potatoes, which are soft enough that a toothpick slides through easily.
6. Use a wooden spoon to gently mash the potatoes (as if cutting them), and mix with the onion and bacon. Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and basil. Serve on a plate and garnish with parsley to finish.

Story Behind this Recipe

While we were out eating dinner, my husband told me that out of all potato dishes, German potatoes are his favorite. So I thought that I would try to make better German potatoes than the one we had that night.
