These are my infamous potatoes that have become a tradition with many families. I came up with the recipe through trial and error.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dice potatoes and place in a sealable bag (ziplock style).
  2. Best to split quantity into two bags.
  3. Add olive oil and Cavenders to each bag, seal and shake vigorously.
  4. (Optional) Allow potatoes to marinade for an hour.
  5. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  6. Empty bags onto two cookies sheets in a single.
  7. Flip potatoes once during cooking, bake until they are crunchy.
  8. Transfer to a casserole pan, cover with cheese and bacon bits.
  9. Broil until cheese is bubbly.
  10. Enjoy my family favorite.

Made this recipe to accompany roasted chicken. The only change I made was to use real bacon that I cooked and crumbled instead of bacon bits. The potatoes had a good flavor, but I think a bit of salt would have put them over the top. Will add some in when I make these again.
