This is a recipe of my daughters. Actually it is a variation of a recipe of mine but my daughter was being creative one day and came up with this. Now my husband says there better than mine and I have to agree. Enjoy

Your daughter can cook! These tasty potatoes have all of the flavors and colors of a restaurant "baked potato with everything on it". They are totally irresistable and tasty, and the bacon is a must! Thanks Cher for sharing...and thank your talented daughter!

Made exactly to a T. Took a previous reviews suggestion and added the bacon grease. They were great.

Dani, as my husband said "those potatoes were the bomb"!! They were so so good-I did as another suggested and added just a little bacon grease but to be honest I didn't even notice it. These will be the only ones I make from now on. Your well on your way to being another Paula Dean!! Excellent recipe...thank you so much.
