New Potatoes with Bacon and Mint



Serves 4

  • 11/2 lb (700 g) new potatoes

  • 8 oz (225 g) smoked, streaky bacon

  • 4 oz (110 g) unsalted butter

  • Pinch of salt and pepper

  • 4 tbs fresh mint, chopped

  1. Choose small, even-sized potatoes and boil them in their skins in very lightly salted water for 10 minutes. Drain and spike each potato in a couple of places with the prongs of a fork.

  2. Meanwhile, cut the bacon into 1/2-in (1-cm) dice and fry in a non-stick pan to release some of the fat.

  3. As they begin to splutter add half the butter and continue cooking over a moderate flame turning frequently.

  4. Add the almost cooked potatoes and finish cooking with the bacon to absorb the fat and flavors.

  5. Transfer to a sewing dish, dot with the remaining butter, season generously with pepper and sprinkle with the mint.
