EVERY DAY: AN EASY – FAST – AND CHEAP – RECIPE THAT SUITS EVERYONE
Everyone likes potatoes and what better occasion than a family lunch or dinner to prepare a side dish of tradition but with a bit of innovation?
The potatoes I propose today, enriched with the bacon bits (which can be safely replaced with dried beef bits), and the scales of pecorino are really delicious and very intriguing!
BAKED POTATOES WITH BACON BITS (OR DRIED BEEF)
Ingredients for 4 people: 8 potatoes – 200 g Diced Sweet Bacon Raspini – 1 onion – 50 g pecorino – Thyme q.b. – Olive oil q.b. – Salt
Peel the potatoes and, with a knife, make many regular cuts in the pulp, then place them in a lightly oiled baking dish.
Inside the grooves put the bacon into cubes. Peel the chopped onion, and sprinkle it over the potatoes.
Place a few sprigs of thyme, pour a drizzle of oil, salt and bake for 25 minutes at 180° C.
Bake the potatoes and transfer them on an elegant and capacious serving dish.
Before serving the potatoes on the table, complete by adding a few pieces of pecorino cheese.
If after 25 minutes the potatoes are still excessively hard, continue cooking in the oven for 5-10 more minutes.
Ideas and variants:
If you do not have thyme you can use rosemary or laurel to flavor the dish.
Enjoy your meal!
