1 sprig parsley
1/8 teaspoon thyme
Small piece bay leaf
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

Boil strained liquid rapidly until reduced to about 1/2 cup. In a skillet, cook bacon until almost crisp; add onion; cook about five minutes until soft, but not browned. Add potatoes to reduced liquid; season to taste and heat thoroughly. Add chopped bacon and onion. Makes 4-6 servings.
