Excellent! The bacon is a nice addition to the potatoes and cheese. No leftover potatoes tonight! We will be having this one again and again. This was made for Fall PAC. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

I made this for my Christmas Night Dinner and it was delicious. The only thing that I changed, was doubling the bacon!!!! Fantastic! Thanks for a great recipe!
