Bacon, Sour Cream and Dill Potatoes

Roasted new potatoes tossed in a warm sour cream sauce with bacon, garlic and dill.

I couldn’t resist sneaking in one more roasted vegetable recipe before grilling season starts! Especially since you can opt to grill them instead of roasting because the sauce gets added last.

I used a type of baby or new potato called a creamer potato. Creamer potatoes are a little bigger than a new potato but still a lot smaller than a normal sized potato. Usually you can find red ones or Yukon gold varieties. For this recipe I used a mix of both.

First the potatoes are roasted with olive oil, salt and pepper. The hot potatoes are then tossed in the creamy sauce made stove top. Sautéed garlic in butter mixed with sour cream, crumbled bacon and fresh dill make the sauce tangy, salty and savory with sweet notes from the fresh herbs.

If you can’t find creamer potatoes substitute new potatoes; use more of them and adjust the roasting time.

    In Greece we don’t have a big variety of potatoes but I could make this with any type! These potatoes look loaded with flavors!

    This is perfect for all the dill that is growing out of control in my “garden” (it’s just a bucket…). I also love that this uses sour cream and not mayo! Something about mayo in the summer just doesn’t sit well with my stomach. Thanks for another simple and tasty recipe!
