This cheesy potatoes recipe is one of those side dishes that are easy enough to make every day, yet tasty enough to serve to company.

We like to serve these cheesy roasted potatoes with lemon roasted chicken or our favorite beef brisket recipe.

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper (to taste)
  • 4 slices bacon
