I've made these twice, and they are simply delicious. The second time, I tried using the bacon that comes partially cooked- and it made a nice difference. There was less grease, and the bacon was nice & crunchy. Thank you for posting this- we love it!!
A friend made these potatoes and brought them over a few weeks ago for our cookout and I had to have the recipe. I knew we were getting low on propane so I actually baked them in the oven. I chopped the potatoes, mixed with the broth and microwaved for 5 minutes before placing in a metal pan sprayed with non cooking spray. I then sprinkled on the seasonings. I cooked the bacon until about 1/2 way done, poured the bacon and grease over the potatoes and then topped w/ thin little pats of butter but less than 1/4 cup. After 20 minutes on 375 I took the foil off, turned the oven up to 425 for maybe 10 minutes to crisp them up a little more. I added the cheddar and onions as soon as I pulled them out of the oven and then added a little spoonful of Litehouse ranch dressing to my helping. YUM! These were a little greasy but so flavorful and good...I will definitely make again. Thanks!
I wasn't sure about this one, but the house was too hot to fire up the oven and we already had chicken on the grill, so I did these up. I cut the potatoes into 1 inch chunks, left the peel on. microwaved them for about 5 minutes to soften them a bit. I added the seasoning, put into the foil packet I had made, added the beef broth but forgot the butter. I tossed some cut up turkey bacon in, sealed it up tight and cooked for about 30 minutes, then added the cheese, leaving the top layer of foil off. These were incredible!! The flavor was soooo good. DH decided that we should add the bacon in as it cooks in long strips to give the flavor, but cook some in the pan and sprinkle on top with the green onion, as crunchy bacon is a prerequisite for him. We will be doing this often, thanks so much for posting!
YUM! I was skeptical when I took this off the grill - the bacon wasn't completely crispy, and I'm picky about having crispy bacon - but this is one of the best potato dishes I've ever made on the grill!!
