  • 12 baby potatoes, halved

  • 2 tbsp maple vinegar (or cider vinegar)
  • 1 tsp fresh rosemary, minced
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup from Canada
  • Salt and ground pepper
  • 1 cup old cheddar, grated


  1. Preheat oven to 425° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  2. Spread the potato halves, cut side down, on the baking sheet and bake 20 minutes or until tender.
  3. Meanwhile, fry the bacon in a pan over medium heat for 10 minutes.
  4. Add the onion and cook another 5 minutes.
  5. Deglaze with the maple vinegar and reduce liquid by half.
  6. Add the rosemary and maple syrup and cook 5 minutes or until the liquid is almost gone. Season generously with salt and pepper, and remove from heat.
  7. Turn the potatoes cut side up and spread the caramelized onion-bacon mixture over them, then sprinkle with the grated cheese. Return to oven, bake au gratin, and serve.

These dressed potatoes will keep in the fridge for about a week.
