When reading the ingredients, with the exception of the rice wine vinegar, this sounded really good. Because I had limited time I quartered the potatoes instead of keeping them whole. This allowed them to get nice and tender in the short period of time I had. These were good, not great. They browned nicely, but in spite of the bacon and the rosemary, which generally contribute great flavor, they just didn’t have a lot of, how shall I say it…spunk.
Super easy recipe! I used the rice vinegar the first time and red wine vinegar the second time and I prefered the red wine vinegar (personal preference). Will definitely use this method to roast potatoes on a hot day...so much better than preheating your oven at 425.
These were really good but I thought they would be great. I used a tri colored mixture of fingerling potatoes. Did not deviate from instructions I just expected more of the bacon flavor. Maybe I will try with a different bacon because I will make them again.
We loved these potatoes. I did have to blot out some of the bacon grease - there was a LOT of grease, but that might have just been the bacon I used. I could not find the little purple potatoes so I use red and white ones. The splash of rice vinegar is a nice touch.
