Yeah, the title sucks ... live with it :p
I am making these tonight in honor of New Years.
k..this recipe lacks only one thing: A RECIPE. It is really more of a formula, a suggestion, if you will.... They are spectacularly unhealthy; they are decadent and wonderful..and whenever I make this, even in massive quantities, ( to take to a cookout, potluck thing ) there is never any left.
These are for my hsb. and my son in law..both of whom I adore. :)
My Suggestion is:
Potatoes, in your chosen amount; you may peel them, or leave them w/the skins. ( Just remember to scrub them well )
Bacon, your chosen amount, fried crispy, crumbled ( or buy the bags of the real stuff, already crumbled )
Shredded Cheese, your chosen amount, your chosen variety.
Slice the potatoes as you would do for homefries. Spread 1st layer over bottom of pan ( size varies with amount ), cover with cheese, bacon...repeat until you have desired amount layered. LAST LAYER SHOULD BE CHEESE/BACON.
Bake at 350 until potatoes are tender, cheese has melted thoroughly throughout all layers.
Feel free to add onions, peppers (before baking) etc.; basically, anything that sounds good to you :) Adorn with sour cream.
Cool thing is..you can do these on the grill in nice weather; either in a foil pouch or grill proof pan.
