This is from March 1990 Bon Appetit. I frequently make this easy meal and we have the leftovers for lunch the next day. It's a household favorite. I highly recommend using hot sausage rather than mild if you don't mind a little spice. Please be aware that the tomatoes do not make a tomato sauce.
My grandmother made these her entire life, where we all grew up, in the North Georgia Mountains. It's one of the few things I learned from her before she passed on. I have always just eyeballed the ingredients, and tasted it for flavor before popping it in the oven (before putting the bacon on, of course), so toy with it a little bit yourself if you'd like.
I have been looking for a grill potato recipe that was just right for a long time. I've tried many that were great, but it was never what I wanted. Then the solution came to me - make up my own! It worked perfectly, and my husband and I enjoy these on a weekly basis. I have never actually measured the ingredients, so my recipe may be a little vague. But that's the beauty of Zaar, isn't it? You're all capable of making this one - no problem.
