Step 1

Boil the potatoes until just fork tender-- not overcooked or they will be too mushy.

Drain the potatoes and allow to cool.

In a 12" skillet, cook the bacon until the fat is rendered.

Add the onion and cook until softened.

With the heel of your hand, gently flatten the cooled potatoes and then set into the pan.

Season the potatoes with kosher salt & fresh ground pepper.

With a spatula, press down on the potatoes and allow to brown- about five minutes. If the pan is dry, drizzle a little olive oil over the potatoes and turn to the other side.

Garnish with fresh parsley and serve.
