16 baby potatoes
6 shallots
6 -8 slices smoked bacon
3 garlic cloves
2 -3 sprigs fresh thyme
12 teaspoon cracked black pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons basil pesto
14 cup parmesan cheese, grated
1 teaspoon light olive oil


Place the potatoes in a saucepan and bring to the boil. simmer for 6 to 7 minuted until the potatoes are tender but yet not very soft. Strain and allow to cool. Thinly slice the shallots and garlic. Cut the bacon into small pieces. Heat the oil in a pan/wok and fry the shallots, garlic and bacon until crispy. Allow the bacon to have a head start to allow it to become crispy and crunchy while frying. When the mixture is just about ready add the few sprigs of thyme and the cracked pepper. Allow this mixture to cool. Slice the cool potatoes into quarters and add the cool bacon/shallots and garlic. Mix together and add the basil pesto to glaze all the ingredients. Sprinkle the Parmesan on top and serve. Enjoy.
