Preheat the oven to 400F. Grease a 8 by 11 inch baking dish with 1 teaspoon of butter and set aside. Bring a pot of water to a boil, add 1 tablespoon of sea salt and sliced potatoes. Bring it to a boil and cook for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes drain the water and set aside.
Next, in the skillet add bacon and saute for 5 minutes, stirring few times (remove bacon grease if you wish, I like to cook with it and leave it in the skillet). After add 2 tablespoon of butter and onion to the bacon and cook for another 5 minutes, stirring few times.
