mini hasselback red potatoes with burrata & bacon

Growing up in the Midwest, meals consisted largely of meat and potatoes. More commonly referred two as the farmer’s diet.

Now, I’ve never met a cow I didn’t like. You can’t go wrong with a delicious, mouth watering piece of steak, but potatoes, are a whole different ball game. See, there are levels of potatoes. You have your russets, pretty blah and basic. Golden potatoes, buttery and smooth great for mashed taters. And then there are my favorite, red potatoes.

Red potatoes are the like a pair of black Patent pumps. They never go out of style and there’s a zillion different ways to use them. Plus, red potatoes are packed full of nutrients, fiber, and the best part, you don’t have to peel!! Can I get a what-what?

I was born and raised in Kansas so you learn to appreciate your local farmer, which is why I was so excited to work with Black Gold Farms. The Halvorsen’s are a third generation family farm and take great pride in creating the perfect potato. Which means, these red potatoes I used from their farm in my mini hasselback red potatoes with burrata and bacon are two-legit-to-quit.
