Bacon Cheddar Potatoes
Mmm Mmm – this recipe, y’all! This recipe with little potatoes, seasonings, bacon & melted cheese turned out SO GOOD! My entire family absolutely loved it! It was incredibly simple to put together because I used these little creamer potatoes. No boiling involved! Plus, creamer potatoes are pre-washed and the skins are thin and tender so I can skip those tedious steps of washing and peeling – hallelujah!
These little potatoes are nutritious too. Ok, granted, this recipe is covered in cheese and bacon (giggles) but this is one of those fun recipes you only make occasionally that you know will be a guaranteed hit with everyone! Little Potatoes are naturally fat-free, sodium-free, cholesterol-free & gluten-free! Normally I keep a bag on hand for oven roasting. They also have easy microwaveable options too that come with the seasoning in the package. Perfect for a busy weeknight! That Garlic Parsley one below is one of my favorites.So back to this recipe. I love the seasoning in this. It’s my all-purpose seasoning for oven roasting potatoes too. So, I figured it would work great with this recipe and it did not disappoint. If you don’t have time to fry up bacon, you can use bacon bits or microwaveable bacon as a substitute.
