Easy Baked Potatoes
For this recipe, I use the Red Klondike potatoes. I don’t really measure much around here (the bane of the Kitchen Witch), but it’s easy enough to figure out how much you want or like of the ingredients.
Red Klondike Potatoes (I start chopping until I have as many as I feel I want)
Cheese of your choice (Gouda is one of our favorites)
Butter (enough so that the potatoes have something to cook in and not stick)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Cut up the potatoes into bite-sized pieces and place in a baking dish, sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- Place aluminum foil over the pan and put in the preheated oven. I cook mine around 15 minutes or so, but time will vary depending on the size you cut the potatoes.
- Once the potatoes are fork-tender, grate cheese over the top, sprinkle with bacon bits and put them under the broiler just long enough for the cheese to get melted well.
Once out of the oven, you could add sour cream over the top if you wanted to, and I want to try that variation myself, but when I made these the last time, I didn’t have any. I also forgot to take any pictures, so the next time I make them, I will make sure to add them!
