Cheese Potatoes


  • 5 strips bacon

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 1 onion chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic chopped

  • balsamic vinegar (optional)

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 3 waxy potatoes peeled and diced

  • salt & pepper

  • 95 g hard white cheese such as comté, gruyère


  • 1.

    Fry the bacon and remove to paper towel to drain.

  • 2.

    Pour all but a tablespoon of the fat from the pan and add the butter to get hot.

  • 3.

    Fry the onion until soft and golden, adding the garlic for a minute or two at the end.

  • 4.

    Deglaze with a splash of balsamic vinegar, if you like.

  • 5.

    Remove all to a plate.

  • 6.

    Now, add the oil to the pan to get hot.

  • 7.

    Cook the potatoes, seasoned with salt and pepper, until soft inside when pierced with a fork, and very crisp and golden on the outside.

  • 8.

    This will take a good 20 minutes, without stirring too much or they won’t get brown.

  • 9.

    Return the onion, garlic, and bacon to the pan.

  • 10.

    Scatter the cheese over the top and leave the pan on the heat, covered, until the cheese has melted, about a minute.

  • 11.

    Serve with mixed salad greens.
