Here’s a perfect recipe for any barbecue or outdoor meal. We remove the bacon from the skillet using a slotted spoon so that the bacon browning can lend delicious flavor to the onions and dressing. Leave the bacon out if you want to make it vegetarian; or add pork bacon if you want the additional flavor and fat.


Uncooked baby potatoes

3 pound(s), halved or quartered

Olive oil

5 Tbsp, divided

Garlic clove

2 clove(s), minced

Kosher salt

½ tsp, or to taste

Black pepper

¼ tsp, freshly ground, or to taste

Uncooked turkey bacon

8 slice(s), diced


1 large, finely chopped (about 1/3 cup)

White wine vinegar

¼ cup(s)


2 Tbsp

Whole-grain mustard

1 Tbsp


1 Tbsp

Old Bay seasoning

1 tsp, or similar product

Fresh parsley

2 Tbsp, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, toss potatoes with 2 tbsp oil, garlic, salt, and pepper; spread evenly on prepared pan. Roast until tender and golden brown around edges, 30 to 35 minutes. Remove from oven; place potatoes and any remaining oil left on baking sheet in a large bowl.
  3. In a large skillet, heat 2 tbsp oil; add bacon and cook until lightly browned, about 7 minutes. Remove bacon from skillet with a slotted spoon; add to bowl with potatoes.
  4. Add shallot to same skillet; cook, stirring often, until tender, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  5. In a small bowl, combine remaining 1 tbsp oil, the vinegar, water, mustard, sugar, and Old Bay seasoning. Add to same skillet, stir, and warm over low heat. Pour dressing over potatoes; toss until all ingredients are well-coated. Season with salt and pepper to taste, if desired; garnish with parsley and serve warm.
  6. Serving size: about 3/4 cup
