Baked Potato With Cheese And Bacon


The good old Baked Potato With Cheese And Bacon, it's an irresistible comfort food for me. Topped with extra crisp bacon and everyone will just love it! Serve it up for brunch or as a side dish for dinner, just remember to warm it up before serving.


Baked Potato With Cheese And Bacon

Ingredients

4 (700 g) Medium Yellow Potatoes, peeled and cubed, about ¾ inches

1 Large Yellow Onion, peeled and chopped
2 Cloves Garlic, peeled and chopped
6 Streaks Smoked Bacon, diced
½ Cup Chicken Stock
250 g Shredded Cheese (such as, Applewood Smoked Cheddar)
¼ tsp Smoke Paprika
Freshly Ground Black Pepper
Sea Salt to taste


Method




Place the potatoes in a large saucepan, cover with cold water, a little salt, and bring it to a boil. Let it boil for about 9 to 11 minutes, then drain and set aside.

Preheat the oven to 400˚F (205˚C). Lightly oil or butter a baking dish.

In a large saucepan, cook the bacon until the fat is rendered, until slightly crisp. Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon, and set aside-reserved 1 ½ Tbsp for sprinkling. Pour the rendered bacon fat in a bowl for another use.



Meanwhile, heat the saucepan over medium heat with one tablespoon of the reserved rendered bacon fat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until the mixture is sticky and slightly caramelized. Then, add the potatoes, smoked paprika, black pepper, sea salt, and chicken stock. Give the mixture a good stir, season with sea salt if necessary. Remove the pan from the heat. Then add the bacon and 200 grams of cheese to the potato mixture. Pour into the prepared baking dish and scatter with the remainder 5o grams cheese. Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake for about 25 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for another 10 to 15 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and light golden brown in color. Sprinkle the reserved bacon before serving.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
