Pan Fried Herbed Bacon Potatoes [whole 30]

MMM… These potatoes are really good. Bacon and fresh herbs seem like a match made in heaven for these fluffy yet browned little bites of yum.

To make these potatoes, you will need the following ingredients.

  • Fingerling Potatoes: about 1.5 lbs. Yukon Gold or Red Potatoes will work well also.
  • No Sugar Bacon: we will use about 1/3 of a standard package. Check for sugar content to confirm Whole 30 compliance.
  • Garlic: 2 cloves, minced. Or more if you really like garlic.
  • Spicy Dijon Mustard: about 2 TBLspns. I didn’t fully measure, but it looked like about this much.
  • Fresh Thyme: a few sprigs.
  • Fresh Dill: as much as you want to garnish.
  • Fresh Chives: as much as you want to garnish.
  • Salt and Pepper: to taste.

These potatoes take about half an hour to make and we will be using both a small pot and a frying pan.

Servings: 2


  • Non-stick pan


  • 1.5 lb Fingerling Potatoes (you could also use red potatoes or yukon potatoes)
  • 1/3 package No Sugar Bacon (applegate or trader joe's brand is great)
  • 2 cloves garlic , minced or pressed

  • Fresh Dill , to garnish

  • Cut up your potatoes and bring a small pot of water to boil.
  • Boil the potatoes until tender. Mine took about 5-7 minutes as they were small.
  • While the potatoes are boiling, chop the bacon into small pieces and pan fry in a non-stick skillet. Remove from heat and separate bacon onto a separate plate.
  • Once the potatoes are tender, drain them, rinse with cold water, and pat dry with paper towels.
  • Reheat the bacon grease in the pan and add the potatoes. Season with minced garlic, thyme, salt and pepper.
  • Let the potatoes cook over medium-high heat until they start to brown, stirring occasionally.
  • Once the potatoes have a little bit of pretty brown color on them, stir in the dijon mustard (a couple small squeezes works well).
  • Continue to cook until the potatoes are nicely browned, but not burnt.
  • Remove from heat and garnish with crispy bacon, fresh chives, and fresh dill.
  • Enjoy!
