Sauteed Baby Potatoes

One of the easiest side dish I can get my hands on. Prepared this for the New Year Family Lunch and they liked it! My mother-in-law and a Tita asked for the recipe, so let me also share this to you.

1/2 kilo baby potatoes

1 tbsp olive oil (butter is an option)

3 cloves garlic, pressed and sliced

1/4 cup chicken broth

1 tbsp bacon bits (can use real bacon, minced)

parsley, roughly chopped

salt & pepper to taste

1. Soak potatoes in water for a few minutes. Then wash each potato in running water by gently scrubbing it with your hands, to make sure dirts are removed. Set aside.

2. Heat pan and put in olive oil. Add garlic and sautee until light brown.

3. Add potatoes and sautee with the garlic for about 2 minutes.

4. Gradually add in chicken broth, but just half of the mixture. Then cover potatoes and let it cook for 10 minutes.

5. Check potatoes once in a while, making sure it has not dried out. Add in remaining broth. Continue to simmer until potatoes are soft enough when poked with a fork.

6. Add a dash of pepper and salt, and taste accordingly. Then sprinkle bacon bits and add in parsley.

7. Prepare in a dish and serve.
