Loaded Skillet Potatoes


You look pretty today. Have you been working out? No? Well, good, because these potatoes will totally kill your diet.

I’d apologize for them, but they’re really, really good, and honestly? I don’t do stuff like this very often.

Potatoes. Onions. Cheese. Bacon fat. And look, it totally has green stuff right there.

I’ll look away if you decide you don’t want to share.

Also? You’ll be seeing that tablecloth all summer long. It’s from HomeGoods. You’re welcome.


Loaded Skillet Potatoes

1-2 slices thick cut bacon
3/4 pound new potatoes
1 clove garlic
1 small white onion
2 tablespoons cream cheese
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
Salt and pepper

In a large skillet, cook the bacon until crisp. Set aside on a paper towel. Do not drain the skillet.

Slice the potatoes into rounds and add them to the hot skillet with the bacon drippings. Mince the garlic, and dice onion. Add the garlic and onion to the skillet. Cook over medium until potatoes are tender but not mushy.

Stir in cream cheese and cover briefly to help the cheese melt. Once the cream cheese is fully incorporated, season to taste. Scatter on the cheddar cheese. Crumble the cooked bacon and sprinkle it, along with the chives, onto the potatoes. Do not stir. Remove from heat, and let potatoes rest about 5 minutes before serving.

Serves 4-6, supposedly.

    I opened the link, and my mouth literally said, “GET IN MY MOUTH!” before I could stop it. And I like that table cloth. I need to take a trip to Home Goods. Oh, but I should probably find a new job first. :)

    Oh. WOW.

    That’s all I’ve got at the moment. I’m going to have to consider this, make it, eat it, eat the leftovers, and then get back to you for a more coherent response.

    Be still my potato loving heart! These look wonderful. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Looks like a dish I’ll be making often this summer.

    BTW – sweet tablecloth :)

    I don’t even know you and I think I love you. Or..that could turn into hate, because once I taste this there may be no going back.

    This post made me chuckle out loud at least twice. And also it made me salivate. So pretty much we’ve got a slobbering laughing hungry wasp situation. Good job.
