  • 1-2 slices thick cut bacon
  • 3/4 pound new potatoes
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 small white onion
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • Salt and pepper


  • In a large skillet, cook the bacon until crisp. Set aside on a paper towel. Do not drain the skillet.
  • Slice the potatoes into rounds and add them to the hot skillet with the bacon drippings. Mince the garlic, and dice onion. Add the garlic and onion to the skillet. Cook over medium until potatoes are tender but not mushy.
  • Stir in cream cheese and cover briefly to help the cheese melt. Once the cream cheese is fully incorporated, season to taste. Scatter on the cheddar cheese. Crumble the cooked bacon and sprinkle it, along with the chives, onto the potatoes. Do not stir. Remove from heat, and let potatoes rest about 5 minutes before serving.

  1. Oh. WOW.

    That’s all I’ve got at the moment. I’m going to have to consider this, make it, eat it, eat the leftovers, and then get back to you for a more coherent response.

  2. Be still my potato loving heart! These look wonderful. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Looks like a dish I’ll be making often this summer.

    BTW – sweet tablecloth 🙂

  3. I don’t even know you and I think I love you. Or..that could turn into hate, because once I taste this there may be no going back.
