the Italian potato garnish, with onion and bacon, which will triumph in your barbecues

First of all, we wash a kilo of potatoes and, without peeling them, add them to a large pot. We cover them with water, turn on the heat, and let them cook for about 30 minutes. With the help of a fork, we check that they are soft, but not overcookedbefore drying them. Drain them and let them cool.

While we peel and chop the julienned onion, and the bacon cubed into small pieces. When we can handle the potatoes without burning ourselves, we peel them with the help of a knife and cut them into irregular pieces in one bite. We reserve

Now, in a large frying pan where all the potatoes will fit, add a tablespoon of oil and another of butter. Let it melt and, when it’s hot, add the onion, cook it for a few minutes and then add the bacon. we let let everything brown for about 10 minutes and add the potatoes.

With the help of a ladle, mash part of the potatoes, season with salt and pepper and add another tablespoon of butter. We continue cooking for 10 or 15 minutes, adding a little vegetable, meat or chicken broth from time to time to prevent the potatoes from burning and add flavor. The secret of this dish is that the outside of the potatoes are toasted and crispy, for which we will have to constantly stir the stew. Once the potatoes are to our liking, remove from the heat and serve immediately.
