Chuck Hughes’ recipe for the tastiest roasted potatoes ever – with bacon bits and rosemary.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

Easy, Moderate, Complex


  • 1/2 lb of fingerling potatoes (225 g)
  • 6 slices of bacon, minced
  • 2 rosemary sprigs, chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Pre-heat oven to 400˚F (200 ˚C)
  2. Wash potatoes and boil them until just tender, 10-15 minutes.  Cut in half.  Meanwhile, in a pan, cook the bacon until crispy. Drain the potatoes and place them in an oven-safe pan with the bacon, bacon fat and rosemary sprigs. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Bake in the oven for about 20 to 25 minutes, remember to stir the pan once or twice so that the potatoes are evenly browned and the bacon fat completely coats the potatoes.
