Bacon & New Red Potatoes Recipe

8-inch Dutch oven
8 briquettes on the lid
8 briquettes on the bottom
Baking time: 45-50 minutes

8-10 new red potatoes, small (less than 2 inches in diameter) sliced
½ teaspoon sea salt
McCormick Grill Mate Montreal Steak seasoning
2 pieces of bacon, sliced or cubed
¼ cube butter or margarine


Brown bacon in Dutch oven over 10 hot briquettes. Drain bacon fat. Add potatoes and mix evenly with bacon. Season with salt and seasoning. Place butter or margarine evenly on top of potatoes. Place lid on oven and add 2 briquettes from bottom along with 6 other hot briquettes. Bake 40-45 minutes until potatoes are done.

Note: Potatoes take on a hint of bacon and butter flavor. The Dutch oven retains the potato's natural moisture. This makes for super good eating potatoes. Optional: cheese can be added 10 minutes before done.
