I’d say that any recipe that starts with cheese and bacon has got to be a hit. And these grilled potatoes are no exception. They were amazing! Perfectly cooked and the bacon, cheese and butter gives them fabulous flavor.
If you’ve ever been to the Texas Roadhouse restaurant, their “cheese fries” appetizer is one of our favorites. These potatoes tasted just like them! They have just about the same exact taste except theirs are made with steak fries and mine are made with fresh potatoes. Yum!
