Prep time: 15 minutes Cook time: 30 minutes Total time: 45 mins
- 32 ounces mini potatoes (red, white and blue (purple) , washed)
- 8 ounces sliced bacon (organic )
- 1 garlic head (minced)
- 4 ounces feta cheese (crumbled)
- 6 tablespoons olive oil ( + 1 tablespoon)
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 3 tablespoons fresh dill (chopped)
- Preheat oven to 420F.
- Lay parchment paper on the bottom of a baking pan.
- Cup the cleaned mini potatoes in halves and place in the baking pan. Drizzle with 6 tablespoons of olive oil, season with salt, pepper and ¾ of the minced garlic. Using your hands combine everything together so all the potatoes are seasoned properly. Distribute the potatoes evenly in the baking pan and bake for 30 minutes.
- While the potatoes are baking, cover a second pan with aluminum foil and place the bacon slices into the pan, without overlaying each other (no oil needed, the bacon will produce its own grease).
- After the potatoes have cooked for 15 minutes, open the oven, carefully mix them with a spatula and return to the oven, also add the bacon pan to a different rack. Cook everything for 15 more minutes.
- Start checking at the 12 minutes mark if the bacon is already cooked.
- Test if the potatoes are done, they must have a soft middle, but shouldn't crumb.
- Remove both pans from oven. Add potatoes to a large bowl.
- Place bacon slices on a cutting board and cut into desired size pieces. Add to the potato bowl.
- Mix the remaining garlic with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and add to the salad bowl.
- Add the crumbled feta, chopped dill, gently stir to combine everything, taste and adjust the seasoning by adding more salt if needed.
