ground black pepper
crumbled cooked bacon
diced red onion
shredded American cheese
grated Parmesan cheese
This is my recipe, so I wanted to be sure to tell people to leave the peels on the potatoes-it adds a great texture. Also, the potatoes should be the medium-sized reds Thanks so much and I hope you enjoy them!
I wasn't impressed with the flavors. Won't make this again.
My husband took a bite of this and said, "Mmm... impressive!" They turned out very good. I did make a few changes: I used mircle whip instead of mayo because we rarely have mayo in the house (we just prefer mircle whip), I used cheddar cheese instead of American because that's what I had on hand that needed to be used anyway, and instead of mixing the bacon in with the potoato mixture I sprinkled them on top and smothered a bit of the potato "sauce" on top of the bacon before adding the parm. cheese. It's been my experience that baking bacon in with a dish makes the bacon very gooey and not crispy which is how I like it. The only thing I will do different next time is cut up the potatoes a little smaller. I cut them into approx. 1/4" slices then across four times each and I think they'd be better a little smaller, but that's just personal perference. I will definately make this again.
Oh my gosh, even a woman can love these potatoes! I had to adapt it a bit, though - we women have to watch our calories! The changes I made: increased the red onion to 1 cup (because my man and I love it!), used half regular mayo and half light, used light sour cream, added 1 T of garlic salt (I find that the light mayo needs a bit more salt than the regular kind), and a heaping T of minced garlic. I used all regular bacon, but after trying this once - and being HIGHLY successful! - I think I could have gone with half turkey bacon and cut the fat down more. I think I also could have used less regular mayo and more light. Amazing what you can do with red potatoes! This recipe is a major keeper, congrats, Old Crow!!!!
Pretty simple potato recipe. I had to improvise with what I had on hand so I subbed a bit. I used about a cup of chopped turkey ham that I had hanging out in the fridge, plain yogurt in place of the mayo, used shredded extra sharp cheddar and added a tsp. of Frank's Hot Sauce and a tbsp. of Jack Daniel's dijon mustard. Smells great in the oven. I hope it's a hit with the three men I share a table with! WE ALL LOVED THIS.
This was very good. Be careful not to overcook the potatoes in the beginning. I cooked a bit too far and they broke apart a bit. The flavor was still heavenly.
Okay, seriously everyone love this recipe. I make it at all my gathering. Even people who don't like potatoes love this recipe. I alway get requests for the recipe. I make this exactly as stated. The only thing I do different is make it 24hours ahead of time. So much flavor.
These were really good. I didn't have real bacon so I used bacon bits! I used yellow onion instead of red. Will make again...SOON!!!!! Thanks for a great recipe, Old Crow!
