One of my very very favorite foods is potatoes! I could seriously eat them at every meal and never get tired of them. As far as potato recipes are concerned, I especially like those like this Garlic Bacon Parmesan Potatoes Recipe where I don’t have to peel the potatoes first. I had a bad first experience with peeling potatoes. When I was in about 6th or 7th grade I was supposed to get supper started while Mom and Dad were both at work and Mom asked me to peel the potatoes. My mom still laughs about the frustrated phone call she received from me complaining that it took 20 minutes to peel my first potato! I think I was under the impression that I could only take off paper thin slices of peeling.
I’m much better at peeling potatoes now, but I’m still not a fan, so this Garlic Bacon Parmesan Potatoes Recipe lets me skip that step!
