Introduction: No Hassle Baked Potato With Bacon
I loved the Forrest Gump movie. Potatoes are a lot like shrimp and when I make them, I think of Bubba's shrimp quote "Anyway, like I was sayin', shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That- that's about it." In 2007, the American Film Institute ranked Forrest Gump as #76 Greatest Movie of All Time.
This potato recipe will wow just about any of your dinner guest. It is simple to make in many different ways, depending on what entree will be served and what you have in the kitchen! It is a well balanced meal by itself and can be prepped for baking in 5-10 minutes and ready to eat in approximately one hour. It is one of those amazing 1 pan meals with easy clean up! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
Step 1: Ingredients and Utensils
Potato ( Russet Potatoes, Red Potatoes, White Potatoes, Yellow Potatoes, Fingerling Potatoes or Petite Potatoes.)
Grated Parmesan cheese
Ground pepper and Sea salt
Bell Pepper different colors set it off.
Fresh Herbs: Thyme, Parsley, Rosemary, or whatever you like or have on hand.
Step 2: Preparation
I had very large potato's and it took 1 hour and 15 minutes to bake which caused the pepper tips to over brown.
Step 3: Wash and Cut Vegetables and Grate Cheese
Slice as shown. I like to cut the slices longer so if baking burns the tips, I can cut them off so the bright color will show. It is nice to have a little contrast.
Grate the cheese.
Slice the bacon.
Step 4: Fill the Baker
Top with butter if desired.
Season with salt and pepper or what ever you like.
Place on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees F for approximately 1 hour.
Top with Parmesan cheese.
Garnish with vegetables.
