- Serves: 4
- 20 small new potatoes
- Olive oil
- Flaked sea salt
- 12 slices of streaky bacon
- 200g grated Parmesan or cheddar
1 Heat the oven to 200 degrees. Take a cast-iron saucepan or a deep roasting tin and add the potatoes, followed by enough oil to coat them evenly. Sprinkle well with salt and rub it all over the potatoes.
2 Place in the preheated oven and bake for roughly 20-30 minutes or until a knife can pierce right through.
3 Next, place the slices of bacon on top and return to the oven and cook until the bacon is cooked to your liking.
4 Finally, sprinkle in the cheese and mix well. Place a lid on top and allow to stand for five minutes before eating.
