Ingredients

  • 2 russet potatoes cut into 1/2 inch slices.
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil (or Canola or Olive Oil)
  • Salt/Pepper to taste
  • 1.5 cups cheddar cheese shredded
  • 6 slices bacon uncooked
  • 4 green onions diced
US Customary - Metric

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Cut the potatoes into 1/2 inch slices a brush each side with oil, then sprinkle with desired amounts of salt and pepper.
  3. Bake the slices on a baking sheet in the oven for about 25 minutes.
  4. As the potatoes bake, line the bacon on a large frying pan, then turn the heat on low. Low and slow is the best way to cook bacon. Use tongs to turn the bacon over once it begins to curl. Do this every so often for even cooking.
  5. Once the bacon is nice and crisp, remove from the heat, and crumble the bacon once it's cooled. Keep the bacon drippings. (Drippings sounds better to me than grease, but it's the same thing.)
  6. Remove the potato slices from the oven and lightly brush the tops with bacon drippings. Use a spatula and carefully flip over each slice, then brush again with bacon drippings. Place back in the oven for 15 more minutes.
  7. Remove the potatoes from the oven once again and decrease the heat to 350 degrees. Top the potatoes with the grated cheese and then with the crumbled bacon. Place back in the oven until the cheese is melted, about 5 minutes.
  8. Remove the slices from the oven and sprinkle with green onions. Serve with sour cream and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

These freeze well, (minus the green onions), and when you're ready to eat them simply pop them into a warm oven for about 8 minutes or so!
