Yukon Gold Roasted Potatoes With Bacon, Onion and Garlic

60 mins (prep 20, cooking 40)
8 ingredients
6-8 servings
You can use any kind of potatoes for this but Yukon Gold are simply the best! All ingredients can be adjusted to taste. If you do not like your garlic crispy then just add in two or three whole bulbs garlic (outer layer of skin removed) sprinkle with oil and place in the roasting pan with the potatoes and separate the cloves after roasting. If desired, roast 1-2 pounds fresh mushrooms in the oven with a bit of butter or oil until they are soft and release their juices, remove to a bowl and continue with the recipe, add in the mushrooms to the roasting pan just before serving, I have done this many times if I have fresh mushrooms handy.
