Recipe by chef kristin #2
Necessity is the mother of invention so they say! I created this recipe based on a dish I had at one of my favorite bbq restaraunts, using only ingredients leftover after making my monthly menu. We ate it as a main course, but you could eat it as a side dish as well!
- 1⁄3 lb bacon, cooked and crumbled
- 5 large potatoes (i used LARGE red ones since thats what we had, but you can use regular baking potatoes also)
- 2 cups cheese (we used artificial cheese since its about 1/2 the cost)
- 1 (15 ounce) can corn
- 0.5 (1 ounce) packet chili seasoning mix (or use a little chili powder & cumin, salt and pepper to taste)
