Cheesy Skillet Potatoes with Bacon

At the heart of many a comfort food recipe you will find potatoes. I don't know too many persons who aren't lovingly attached to these starchy globes of goodness but adding cheese and bacon truly creates a fully satisfying potato based comfort Food. Lovingly tossed together in a skillet and then baked to perfection, this dish guarantees to be a fast favorite. Here's my recipe and I do hope you enjoy. INGREDIENTS 5-6 medium Potatoes peeled and cubed 2 cups shredded Mild Cheddar Cheese 2 cloves Garlic crushed and chopped 1 small Onion sliced 1 tbsp Vegetable Oil 1 cup chopped Bacon 1 tsp Smoked Paprika 1/2 tsp chopped Parsley 1/4 tsp Black Pepper 1 tsp Salt or to taste METHOD ●Bring a medium to large saucepan to a boil, salt water generously and add potatoes, cook for 15 mins or until potatoes are soft.
