New potatoes are something I am always eagerly waiting for. Once they arrive, I use them for anything possible.

Potatoes and bacon casserole

For me, new potatoes reign supreme when they are prepared in the simplest possible way, i.e. boiled in water. Of course, I serve them with melted butter and dill. In this version, they are an addition to meats. Sometimes, I also serve them with cottage cheese mixed with sour cream and green onion.

Another way I use the new potatoes quite frequently is casserole. Casseroles can be meaty or meat free, depending on what you fancy or what you have in the fridge.

Recently, I prepared a casserole with bacon and tofu cheese. Let me tell you, that tofu cheese perfectly matched the taste of potatoes and the crispy bacon.

I did not remove the skin from the potatoes. They tasted much better when cooked with it.

Do not fry the garlic on a high heat for too long, otherwise it may burn and become bitter.
