Grandpa has had a battle with cancer this last year so we didn't expect any potatoes this summer. So grateful and excited that he is doing well. I wanted to make sure I had this family favorite written down. It seems to me the "old" recipes that have been passed down are always the best. I hope you enjoy one of our family favorites.
Grandpa's Dutch Oven Cheesy Potatoes
For a 10 inch Dutch Oven, (Double for a 16 inch)
5-7 lbs of Potatoes
1/2 lb of Bacon, cut and cooked
1 can cheddar cheese soup
11/2 cups grated cheese
2 medium onions
1 sq. Butter or Margarine
Salt and Pepper
Heat Dutch Oven. Cook Bacon until Semi-crisp add onions, cook until transparent. Add Potatoes Season with salt and pepper. Stir-if sticking add some water. Cook on low heat until done. Be careful not to over cook. You don't want it mushy. When spuds are done stir in soup. Top with grated cheese. Cover with lid and leave it covered until cheese is melted.
