Cheesy Roasted Potatoes with Bacon

Cheesy Roasted Potatoes with Bacon

This easy side dish recipe has quickly become a new favorite in my house, and is on regular rotation. Every time Craig sees me getting the bags of little potatoes, he knows I am about to make Cheesy Roasted Potatoes with Bacon. It’s like eating a baked potato just roasted on the stove top. 

Cheesy Roasted Potatoes with Bacon

The original recipe is from Bee at Rasa Malaysia: Easy Delicious Recipes. I’ve kept it pretty much the same; however I did double up a few of the ingredients. Craig and I are a tall couple (me 5 ft. 9in. him 6ft. 3in.) and we need our carbs, so we like larger portions than most. With me lifting weights 6 days a week and being a hard gainer, I have to make sure I eat enough food. Great excuse to do what I love…..EAT!
