McAllister Potatoes (Food Network Rip-off)


1.5 lb Petite Yukon Gold Potatoes
1 lb Bacon
1 Red Bell Pepper
1 Big Walla Onion
Parsley (or any available fresh herb on hand)
Sour Cream or Crema Mexicana
Salt and Pepper to taste
Garlic would have been a good option.

How to make:

Chop bacon into small pieces, and add to pan with the diced onion - sauté on medium low heat rendering the fat from the bacon. We are finished when the bacon looks a little crispy, removing bacon and onion from pan - leave bacon grease in the pan for later. Boil potatoes until they are fork tender, upon which we remove, drain and cool in cold water. Flatten potatoes with a towel and the palm of hand - make it look like a fat pancake - don't smash too thin. Crisp the smashed potatoes in the bacon grease.

Grill/roast red bell pepper, and then dice it. Add pepper to the crisped potatoes with sour cream. Option: spice it up! Eat!
