Method

  1. Scrub new potatoes well and rinse in cold water. Cook in boiling salted water for 15-20 minutes with bay leaves until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat the grill to high. Melt butter in a small pan, add a bunch of spring onions, chopped and cook gently for 1-2 minutes to soften.
  3. Grill the smoked streaky bacon until crisp and golden, drain on kitchen paper, then break into small pieces.
  4. Drain the potatoes and toss with the spring onions, olive oil, some sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Put the potatoes in a warmed serving dish and top with the bacon pieces. Drizzle with more olive oil if needed.

Dressed this with a little lemon juice for a bit of a zing. A really tasty recipe. Recommended.

These are absolutely gorgeous. I did them with roast pheasant and red wine sauce with some sugar snap peas and they went down a storm.
