I don’t know about you, but this is the time of year when I start gearing up for all of the holiday parties and get togethers. It seems like every weekend between here and the New Year is packed with stuff to do and people to see. I’m not complaining, mind you, I love socializing, it’s just I get tired of taking the same old standard green bean casserole to every event. Especially since everyone else brings green bean casserole and we are all just sitting around eating a bunch of green bean casserole and that is no fun at all.

I want something different, something more creative but something quick and easy to make, I don’t have a whole lot of time to cook and bake after juggling time for my family and making time for my kids belts. Plus, who wants to spend all day in the kitchen slaving over a hot stove unless you are a housewife circa 1920.

My assistant (Jen) shared her sister’s potato recipe with me and I am definitely adding this to the rotation of potluck dishes because it is so good and so easy! Jen says that if her sister can fix it, then anyone can because her sister admittedly hates to cook.

Cheesy Bacon Roasted Potatoes


5lbs Red Potatoes(Chopped into Cubes)
1 8oz Block of Cheddar Cheese (Shredded)
1 lb of Bacon (Cooked Crisp & Crumbled)
1 Cup of Melted Butter
3 Cloves Chopped Garlic
Chives or Parsley (Optional)

Preheat oven to 350. Boil the potatoes in salted water until just fork tender. Drain the water and place potatoes in a 9×13 baking dish. Mix the chopped garlic into the melted butter and pour evenly over all of the potatoes. Top with the shredded cheddar and the crumbled bacon. Bake until cheese starts to brown. When finished baking, top with chopped chives or fresh parsley. Serve warm.

Let me just say, this it a hearty dish that is sure to please anyone at your next get together. Who can beat a combination of bacon, cheese and butter? Isn’t that like the holy trinity of cooking??
