How to jazz up some rather boring new potatoes?

I was thinking of part-steaming then sauteeing in butter and garlic. They are to go with plainish chicken and vegetables. Would it be completely ott to put a bit of chopped bacon in there too?

You could make a mini dauphinois, Jamie Oliver has a dead easy version in his 15 minute meals where you roast onions whilst boiling potatoes and then pour over a bit of cream or white sauce (can't remember exactly) and bacon would be a lovely addition.

Or, what about making them a bit Spanish? Par boil and then fry with onions, garlic, chopped tomatoes and some paprika and cayenne pepper - add chorizo if you have it?

Cut in half, add some paprika and olive oil and roast in oven for 40 mins

Crush them and add lashings of sea salt, olive oil and either rosemary or mint.

Sorry, where are my manners? I slow-roasted them with some whole cloves of garlic in olive oil in the end and they were lush!

But I am going to try every single idea on here, they all look gorgeou!. I love new potatoes, but they can be a bit dull at the beginning of the season.

Oh yes Tempus' crush idea is brilliant - I love doing that with new potatoes - par boil, drain, spread out on a baking tray covered in olive oil, squash them with a potato masher so they're like cookies, then drizzle with more oil, lots of salt pepper and rosemary and roast for half an hour. Divine.
