An Addicting Roasted Potato Recipe

So these Crispy Oven Roasted Bacon Potatoes – you need to make them ASAP. Oven roasted potatoes tossed in a warm bacon dressing and then MORE bacon added to that…these are the most amazing potatoes you’ll ever eat.

This recipe is along the lines of a German Potato Salad, but even better. First of all, these potatoes are oven roasted until crispy instead of just boiled potatoes like a potato salad. Second of all we’re adding tons of bacon to our bacon dressing, not just a tablespoon or two of bacon bits.

This roasted potato side dish works for a casual dinner with grilled steak and even on your holiday table along with that gorgeous Beef Wellington.

How To Make Oven Roasted Potatoes with Bacon

Start out by just cubing potatoes into small pieces like you see in the photos. I used smaller potatoes to get more skin on each one, but you can use whatever size you have, just make sure they are about the same size that I have here.

When the potatoes are roasting you can make the skillet dressing. This is a warm dressing, which is perfect for these potatoes so they don’t cool down as you toss them. If you’ve never made a warm bacon dressing before now is the TIME.

The dressing is easy, just a few tablespoons of bacon grease…yep bacon grease from the bacon you cooked just before. That is going to swap out for the oil in this dressing so make sure you save it.

Then it’s standard dressing making from here, dijon mustard to make the dressing stay together (and for flavor) vinegar, a pinch of sugar, salt and pepper.

When the potatoes are done and super crispy, pull the out of the oven and get them into a large bowl to toss with the dressing.

If the dressing separates in the pan just whisk it back together before tossing with the potatoes, it’s all going in the same place. Epic, Crispy, Bacony, Potatoes. That’s actually what I should have called these but one bite and you’ll be right there with me.
