Tasty Thursday – Cheesy, Bacon Potatoes

Looking for the perfect side dish? Look no further! These are my cheesy, bacon oven roasted potatoes. They are the perfect pairing to any meat/“meat” main dishes. Who doesn’t love meat and potatoes?

I often struggle when it comes to side dishes. I usually keep it simple…rice and veggies, but every now and then I get a little wild lol, and by wild I mean cheesy, bacon oven roasted potatoes.

*Note: This dish can also be made Vegan. Here’s a link to some Vegan Bacon Crumbles.

Cool Foods, Veggie Bacon Bits Hickory Smoked, 3 Ounce https://www.amazon.com/dp/B018CCLARE/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_4yn1Cb2PVQVAD

What you’ll need:

  • 3-4 Medium Sized Russet Potatoes
  • Olive Oil
  • Crumbled Bacon In the bag (As much or as little as you like)
  • Green Onions (As much or as little as you like)
  • Shredded Cheese (As much or as little as you like)
  • Sea Salt to taste
  • Black Pepper to taste
  • Sour Cream (Optional)

Disclaimer: I often struggle writing out my recipes because I don’t measure, never have. So this is an approximation, but the recipe is fairly simple.


  • Preheat over to 350 degrees
  • Wash potatoes with a brush because skin will be left on for this recipe
  • Slice potatoes a little less than half an inch. Not super thick and not potato chip thin.
  • Place sliced potatoes in a bowl and 2-3 tbs of olive oil and season with sea salt and pepper to taste. Mix around with hands to make sure they’re evenly coated.
  • Line a large cookie sheet with wax paper or foil and line the potatoes up in a single file line (can’t think of the right word 🤣)
  • Place in oven and bake until fork tender. About 20 minutes or so. Could be less. Remember they’re cut thin and cook quickly.
  • Pull them out and layer them (as pictured in my photo), and top with cheese/vegan cheese, crumbled bacon and place back in stove until cheese is melted.
  • Remove from stove and top with green onions. Serve with sour cream.

Bon Apetit!

Until next time…🦋
