Cheesy Potatoes

I created this recipe a few years ago for a fifth-grade school project. I love being in the kitchen with my mom and helping her with meal preparations. My whole family was impressed with the few additions I made to these potatoes to make them extra tasty. -Jessica Ryan, Victoria, Texas

    I haven't tried these with the bacon, but without they are good. It makes a potatoe side dish that is really tastey.
