Ingredients

  • 1 lb Small Yukon Gold Potatoes
  • 6 slices bacon — cooked and chopped
  • 1 1/4 cups cheddar cheese — grated
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley — optional, for garnishing

Instructions

  1. Wash potatoes and clean from any dirt. Place in a pot. Fill with water, covering the potatoes. Bring to a boil. Turn the heat off. Cover and let the potatoes stand for 5-7 minutes.

  2. Preheat oven to 400F.

  3.  Drain the water and cut potatoes in half. Using a small spoon, scoop out some of the inside of the potatoes, to make some room for the filling. Place in a greased baking dish and sprinkle with half of the cheese. Bake for 2 minutes, until the cheese is melted.

  4. Add the bacon and the remaining cheese. Bake for 2-3 more minutes, until the cheese is melted and the tops look golden.

  5. Garnish with chopped parsley and serve immediately.
