loaded red potatoes recipe

These are not necessarily healthy… at least not with the amount of cheese and bacon we put on them tonight… but if you scale back on those (and sour cream) they should be a doable indulgence. And even if they don’t fit into your plan… they’re worth breaking it. Just this once. Trust me… just do it.

And now I need to stop with the rampant overuse of ellipses. Sorry, guys.

I don’t include measurements (a lot of times) because I don’t measure, really (unless I am baking). Just eyeball it. Remember to start easy and add more as needed, because it is easier to add than to take away.

Ingredients you need
: Red potatoes, olive oil, salt, pepper, green onion (chopped), crumbled bacon, shredded cheddar, sour cream

How to make em:

Preheat oven to 425. Wash red potatoes. Do not peel, but cut into wedges. Coat with a few tablespoons of olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast 30 minutes until tender. (Roast longer if you’d like crisper potatoes.) Remove from oven, add bacon, cheese and most of the green onion, reserving a bit for garnish. Return to oven for another ten minutes. Serve with sour cream and additional chopped green onions.

Truly, these were fantastic. Let me know what you think if you try them, or if you make something similar!
