Preparation time: 20 minutes; cooking time: 50 minutes




2 lbs PEI potatoes 900 g
1/2 tbsp vegetable oil 7 ml
1 onion, finely chopped 1
1/4 lb bacon, salt reduced 125 g
1 1/2 cups vegetable stock 375 ml
to taste pepper to taste
to garnish chopped parsley  to garnish

Preheat over to 375°F (190°C). Remove and discard the fat from the bacon, and chop the bacon into small pieces. Peel the potatoes and cut each into 6-8 pieces. At medium temperature, heat oil in a skillet and add onions. Stir and cook for 2-3 minutes, but do not brown. Add bacon to the onions. Cook and stir 2 minutes. Add potatoes and stir to coat. Transfer the mixture to a shallow ovenproof dish. Carefully pour the stock over it. Season with pepper and bake uncovered for 45-50 minutes, until potatoes are tender. Garnish with chopped parsley. Variation: If using leftover potatoes, reduce cooking time to 25 minutes. Serves 4.
