  • 8 – small red potatoes, skin-on and diced (about 3 cups)
  • 1 – red bell pepper, diced
  • 3 tablespoons – unsalted butter
  • 3 teaspoons – minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon – fresh thyme, finely chopped, plus more for topping if needed
  • 1 teaspoon – fresh oregano, finely chopped, plus more for topping if needed
  • 2 tablespoons – all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup – milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon – salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon – pepper
  • 2 slices – low-sodium turkey bacon, cooked near crispy
  • 1/4 cup – finely grated reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese
  • Pair each serving with:

Add potatoes, bell peppers, butter, garlic, thyme and oregano to a large skillet. Stir over medium heat until butter is melted and potatoes are fork-tender.

Sprinkle flour over potato mixture and stir to coat. Gradually stir in 2/3 cup milk until a sauce forms. Season with salt and pepper to taste and stir in slices of turkey bacon. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese and cover, allowing to melt for 1-2 minutes. Uncover and top with additional herbs, if desired, before serving.

Pair each serving with an 8-ounce glass of milk and serve. Enjoy!
