5lbs.– red fresh potatoes
1large – onion
Wash, scrape or peel the potatoes. (Tip: Young potatoes scrape better under running water) Wash the potatoes again. Cut bigger potatoes into smaller pieces, rinse the potatoes under cold water. Place the potatoes into a medium pot; add cold water to the pot so the water covers the potatoes.
Place the pot with potatoes onto a stove top. Add 1 tbsp. of salt. Bring potatoes to a boil, reduce heat to low, remove white foam from the boiling water and let the potatoes boil/simmer. Do not cover the pot with a lid all the way, because this will make the potatoes to be mushy. Boil the potatoes until tender. To test if potatoes are done cooking, simply poke a fork or thin knife into larger potato, and if the knife slides into potato very easy than that means the potatoes are done cooking.
While the potatoes are cooking, prepare ingredients for the caramelized onion with bacon for potato topping. Cut bacon, onion, and dill into small pieces.

Drain the potatoes. Place the potatoes into a large glass bowl. Top the potatoes with caramelized onion and bacon, and then sprinkle with fresh cut dill.
