These Irish Roasted Red Potatoes with Caramelized Onions & Bacon are so good that you may be tempted to eat them for dinner all alone! Tender oven-roasted baby red potatoes, sweet caramel-colored ribbons of caramelized onions and bacon, sprinkled with parmesan cheese and fresh herbs are beyond wonderful! Try these with corned beef on St. Patrick’s Day, or serve with your favorite grilled steak. Possibly the best potatoes you will ever have – there are never any leftovers when I make these!
