 Ingredients List

  • 1 1/2 lb Sm. even-size new potatoes
  • 1 tb Corn oil
  • 1 tb Butter
  • 1 Clove Garlic; crushed
  • Salt And Pepper; to taste
  • 2 Sprigs mint
  • 4 Bacon slices
  • 4 Green onions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Scrub potatoes well under cold water, but
do not peel. Leave whole and pat dry on paper towels. Prick each potato
twice with a fine skewer.

2. In a flame-proof casserole dish, heat oil and butter. Add potatoes and
fry 5 minutes to brown lightly, turning frequently. Stir in garlic and salt
and pepper. Add 2 mint sprigs. Cover and bake in preheated oven 20 minutes
or until almost tender.

3. Cut bacon in thin strips. Slice green onions diagonally in thin slivers.
Remove mint from casserole and stir in bacon and green onions. Cook,
uncovered, 10 minutes, until bacon is crisp and potatoes are tender. Spoon
into a warmed serving dish and garnish with mint sprigs. Makes 4 servings.

VARIATION: Use 3 or 4 shallots instead of green onions. Thinly slice and
separate in rings.
