Cheddar Bacon Potatoes
Morsels of Life - Cheddar Bacon Potatoes

After making these Swirl Biscuits, I knew I wanted something similar I could eat with dinner, maybe as a side. I thought back to some of my Five Friday Finds and this recipe from Moms with Crockpots came to mind (featured here). Looking over the recipe, it was just what I wanted. Except the cook time was 10 hours, and I had less than 1 until dinner. I figured if I went ahead and chopped up the taters, I could get them ready faster by boiling. After cooking the taters, just let most of the water boil off, throw some cheese on top, and then mix in your toppings. I just used green onions and bacon bits, but don’t let me limit you. Pretty much everything you’d put in or on a baked potato would work well here! Give these Bacon Cheese Potatoes a try and see how tasty you can make them!

What toppings do you like on your taters?
