Crispy English Potatoes
6-8 Yukon Gold potatoes, unpeeled & cut into chunks
4 oz diced pancetta
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
salt & fresh ground pepper

Heat oven to 425 degrees. Place the potato chunks in a large saucepot, cover with water, add salt and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for ten minutes. While potatoes are cooking, place pancetta on a cooking sheet and roast for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside. Drain potatoes and place back into the saucepot. Put the lid on the pot and shake the potatoes to roughen up the skin a bit.
