Total Time:
45 min
15 min
30 min

6 to 8 serving

  • 1 package dry form crab boil (recommended: Zatarain's)
  • 3 pounds red potatoes
  • 1 pound thick-cut bacon, diced
  • 1 cup diced red onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 pound butter, at room temperature
  • 1/4 pound finely shredded Cheddar
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • Fill a 6-quart pot 2/3 full of water; add the crab boil and mix until blended. Cut the potatoes in half and slice into 3/8-inch thick pieces. (This can be done ahead of time; cover the potatoes with ice water until ready to cook.) Add the potatoes to the pot. Bring water to a boil and cook the potatoes until fork-tender.

  • While the potatoes are cooking: in a medium saute pan on medium heat, cook bacon until crispy; remove and drain on a paper towel. Add red onion to bacon grease; cook until caramelized. Just before onions are done, add garlic and cook until lightly brown.

  • In a bowl, place butter, 1/2 the cheese, 1/2 the bacon bits, 1/2 the green onions, the cooked red onions and garlic, cayenne, paprika, salt, pepper, and sour cream; mix together thoroughly.

  • Strain potatoes and add to bowl; let stand for a few minutes or until cheese starts to melt. Fold ingredients together, trying not to break up the potatoes excessively. Top with remaining cheese, bacon, and green onions.

  • Check seasonings and adjust to taste.
