Easy Cheddar Bacon Potatoes

I saw this recipe over at Sarah's Cucina Bella and decided to try it out today. It turned out to be the perfect side dish for Mike's barbecued country-style ribs. The potatoes cook up so quickly, which is nice when it's 95 degrees outside. A dollop of sour cream is the perfect topping.

Bacon Cheddar Potatoes
serves 4

4 medium potatoes
olive oil
salt and pepper
1/2 cup sharp cheddar
1-2 slices cooked bacon, crumbled

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Wash potatoes. Then cut into slices about 1/4 inch thick.

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Spray with cooking oil. Arrange potatoes in a single layer on the baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with a generous amount of salt and pepper.

Place the baking sheet in the oven and cook for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with cheddar and bacon. Place back in the oven and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Serve hot.
