I chopped my potatoes into quarters. Then I cut up 1/2 of a large shallot into thin slices and 3-4 cloves of garlic, also into thin slices.
Next, I seasoned my my potatoes with thyme and pepper and let them cook until tender. Tossing and stirring occasionally.
Here's a trick to perfect bacon, everytime. Cook it in the oven!! Most packages have oven instructions on the back but...I did mine at 400 degrees for 14 minutes. I like my bacon crispy!! They look and taste great, plus if you put them on a rack in a baking pan, the grease will drip off for healthier bacon!!
