This is the one and only bacon garlic potatoes recipe you’ll need! These loaded potatoes are topped with a ton of bacon bits, garlic butter and fresh herbs! I love the addition of dill herb as a topping – it adds incredible flavor. The aroma from this dish is mouth watering! It’s the perfect side dish that goes with everything – your favorite BBQ recipe, grilled meats and even steak! Try it with my Grilled Ribeye Steak, Chicken & Veggie Kabobs or Lamb Kabobs.

Loaded Bacon Garlic Potatoes
Making this delicious side dish is so easy! Start by preparing the potatoes. Peel the potatoes and drop them into a pot of salted water, then cook until fork tender. You can also prepare this dish with baby potatoes instead of chopped whole potatoes. Prepare them the same way and proceed with the recipe. While the potatoes are cooking away, prepare the bacon and the rest of the toppings. Render the bacon until crispy, then chop into small bits. Chope fresh herbs and green onion, too.
Keep the bacon fat in the pan to prepare the garlic butter topping. Add butter to the fat, along with garlic and let the butter melt, cooking the garlic just slightly. Once the potatoes are done, assemble the dish! Coat the potatoes in the prepared garlic butte, top with the bacon bits, herbs, green onion and cheese! I recommend adding the cheese on top when the potatoes are still pipping hot so it gets a chance to melt.
A HUGE thank you to my mom and sisters for sharing this incredible recipe with me! They shared this recipe with me on my recent trip to WA and I fell in love with it immediately! We had these garlic potatoes with grilled chicken kabobs and simple tomato-cucumber salad. The combination of flavors was spot-on! I hope you enjoy this recipe with your family as much as I do!
