What's not to love about this? Potatoes, cheese, and bacon. More, please! I had some red potatoes left from an earlier recipe, and I needed a good side dish for some of the biggest steaks I'd ever seen. This fit the bill. It couldn't be easier, and I already had everything at the house.
When you saw this post, if one of your first thoughts was about fat and cholesterol, then just thank me for omitting the entire stick of butter that the original recipe called for. See? Now you can feel good about eating this.
Cheesy Bacon Potatoes
1.5-2 lbs red potatoes, washed and cut into small wedges
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 350. Grease bottom and sides of a baking dish with cooking spray. Place potatoes in dish, and drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover with foil, and bake potatoes until tender, 45-60 minutes. Remove foil and cover with cheese and bacon pieces. Place back in oven until cheese is melted, 5-10 minutes.
