DIRECTIONS

  • Spread the bacon strips across a large rimmed baking sheet pan and place on the middle rack of a cold oven. Set the temperature to 400 degrees. Set a timer for 16 minutes and check the bacon. Remove it from the oven when it is as crisp or crunchy as you like.
  • While the bacon is cooking, peel and chop the potatoes. Transfer the bacon to a paper towel lined plate to drain. There should be 2 to 3 tablespoons of bacon grease left on the tray. If there is more than that, drain off a bit. Put the potatoes on the tray and toss with tongs to thoroughly coat them in the bacon grease. (I cooked mine in butter--personal preference).
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Spread the potatoes out in a single layer and bake for 20 minutes. Stir well and bake another 20 minutes. Stir again, making sure that none of the potatoes are sticking to the tray. Bake another 15 minutes.
  • Chop the bacon into small pieces. Remove the potatoes from the oven, stir again, and sprinkle generously with shredded cheese and chopped bacon.
  • Return the tray to the oven and bake an additional 2 to 3 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Top with sliced green onions just before serving.
