Directions

Step 1

Fry the bacon and remove to paper towel to drain. Pour all but a tablespoon of the fat from the pan and add the butter to get hot. Fry the onion until soft and golden, adding the garlic for a minute or two at the end. Deglaze with a splash of balsamic vinegar, if you like. Remove all to a plate.

Step 2

Now, add the oil to the pan to get hot. Cook the potatoes, seasoned with salt and pepper, until soft inside when pierced with a fork, and very crisp and golden on the outside. This will take a good 20 minutes, without stirring too much or they won’t get brown.

Step 3

Return the onion, garlic, and bacon to the pan. Scatter the cheese over the top and leave the pan on the heat, covered, until the cheese has melted, about a minute. Serve with mixed salad greens.
