Spicy Potatoes W/Smoked Gouda, Bacon & Onions (#9)

"Another recipe from my long-lost, but newly found treasure trove of recipes. There was a note w/this 1 that the recipe originated at the www.johnsonville.com site. I know why I saved this. DH views potatoes as a required part of every main meal, but I get bored w/repeat versions so am always on the lookout for new potato taste treats. Enjoy! .. *Edited to Add* -- This recipe was included in Germany-Benelux for ZWT6 due to its use of Gouda cheese as a primary ingredient & is supported by Wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gouda_(cheese) :-)"

    Wow...did we ever love these potatoes!! This is such an easy dish to prepare, but has lots of wonderful flavor. We loved the combination of the spices, bacon, and smoked gouda cheese. To add a little extra flavor, I used some of the bacon grease, instead of the butter, to cook the onions and spices and to brown the potatoes. I made this in a 12" cast iron skillet which gave the potatoes a nice, brown finish. I crumbled the bacon over the potatoes and sprinkled the cheese on top as directed. I popped the pan under the broiler until the cheese was melted...yum!! Thank you for sharing this fabulous recipe...it is definitely a keeper!!<br/>**Made for Football Pool 2012**

I am an American transplanted from Dallas to Iceland by marriage to a native Icelander & I retired to become his "Kitchen Queen". We love to entertain our family & friends, so I have an eclectic collection of recipes. I especially love simple, easy-fix, flexible & make-ahead recipes - BUT also like challenging myself on occasion. I enjoy baking & food photography. I am devoted to the "More is Always Better Principle" & apply it liberally to bacon, butter & garlic. I can have ingredient issues due to availability here in Iceland & my DH is medically diet-restricted from some ingredients as well. Either situation might require me to modify a recipe, but I will do my best to be true to your recipes & fair/honest in my reviews. Mary Pat (aka twissis)
