This Bacon Feta Pan Potatoes dish is comforting, easy and affordable. Perfect as a main course or a hearty side dish, either way your family will love this.
What’s your favorite dish from when you first started cooking? Mine is this potato creation. It also doesn’t hurt its chances as being my favorite seeing as how this was the ONLY thing I knew how to cook back then.
Nothing like hedging those bets, huh?
Seriously, this is easy and comforting all day long. Many, many (….. MANY…..) moons ago when I was in my early 20’s and living on my own, this dish was a lifesaver. I was never home and I was always broke (*shout out to the girls who live on their own with no roommates, pay their own bills with no help from anyone, have a good job and manage to survive on a $25.oo a week grocery bill #ramen). Ahhh … good times. This was long before Big Scary Mike, back when I stayed out all night and never knew what the day would bring and random impulsiveness was the word of the day. Now it’s all about husband and dogs and mortgages and planning ahead and RESPONSIBILITY!!!
But back in the day of misspent youth, this dish was my savior. I would make a big pot of this Sunday nights and nosh on it though out the week as I flew in long enough to heat up a bowl and to change clothes for my next adventure then out the door I went. This potato dish is easy.. it is affordable… IT IS DELICIOUS!!
Maybe we are past the time of late night parties and lost weekends but delicious meals are timeless and this is certainly one of them. Eat this as a main course (mmm… add in some grilled chicken or summer sausage) or serve it up as a hearty side, either way you have a winner.
And if for some reason you have ANY leftovers… trust me… it reheats well.
