    Family loved this. I added in some ham amd made it a main course. My daughter is not normally a pork or cheese eater, but she almost ate it all herself.

    Made this for a Boy Scout event. I added extra bacon and mixed some cheese with the mixture, then covered the top with remaining cheese.

    I had leftover baked potatoes and not a lot of time so i cooked the bacon stove top and chopped the baked potatoes and cooked them at a high temp in the bacon fat til crispy. Then added back the bacon bits and green pepper and cheese, added some onion and garlic powder. Yum!!

    Took awhile to cook but it was worth it in the end however the bacon grease made me feel a little guilty.

    We now have a thousand and one ways to make great potato meals. I did spice it up a little with some garlic salt, chilli powder, steak spice, etc.

    I make this all the time.. didnt realoze it was a recipe on here. However i dont put them in the oven. its all done on stove top. adding onion. I cook the bacon, then use the same skillet fry the potato for a flavored crust, then place lid on top cooking them slowly to soften them. add the cheese n bacon half way through, fry up a sunny side up egg on top or scramble on the side. garnish with sliced avocado or salsa or sour cream... a filling breakfast for the Mister. also i sometimes let the potatoes sit in salt water for a bit and deep fry them but the size are hearty chunks.

    easy to make, i just disagree with the baking time, i baked them in the pan turning them in a few times so they will get crispy and then put them inside of the oven for around 10 min stir them out and then other 3 minutes, add the bacon cheese and they were perfect!

    Pretty decent, there was a bit too much bacon grease though. Nothing a little bit of paper toweling can’t fix!

    This is one of my favorite dishes. Of course I add more cheese to make it even better.
