Crispy roasted potatoes, topped with melting cheese and plenty of crisp bacon are a great side dish for any meal. I’ve served these Crispy Cheese and Bacon Potatoes with eggs for breakfast and with herb roasted chicken for dinner. There is never a bite leftover.
The secret to these potatoes is an extra long roasting time and a good drizzling of bacon grease. The smoky bacon flavor is in every bite and the extra minutes in the oven leave the edges of each potato nice and crisp with a fluffy center. The recipe is really quite simple, despite the extra time in the oven. Luckily, there is very little actual work involved, making this my kind of recipe!
