Blue Cheese & Bacon Potato Heaven

I was hosting a BBQ at my house the other night and wanted to get crafty with my menu….BBQ is so predictable for me sometimes…corn…beans…bread…meat…BLUE CHEESE & BACON POTATO’s are sure to zest things up, right?? I saw my inspiration in the Costco cook book (yes such a thing does exist, it’s quite amazing). Now off to get choppin’…..


  • 4 pounds red potatoes
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • salt & pepper
  • 3/4 lb bacon
  • 1 large red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 1 cup crumbled blue cheese



To cook on grill, first preheat grill. Toss potatoes in olive oil and salt and pepper and grill for 3 minutes. Next cook the bacon on a skillet until brown and either chop up or throw in a food processor with blue cheese to crumble. Remove most of bacon fat but leave a little and cook onions in skillet until soft. stir in 1/c cup olive oil, sugar, and vinegar until all dissolved. Add bacon, potatoes, parsley, and cheese and toss together. Serve warm.
