What kind of potatoes are best for this dish?
Any type of potato will work, but I recommend Yukon golds.
What is the best way to cook bacon?
Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil and place a cooling rack on top. The excess fat from the bacon will drip below for easy cleanup. Place
the bacon onto the cooling rack and put into a cold oven. Turn the oven to 400 degrees and bake for 20-25 minutes, rotating halfway through.
What kind of cheese do you recommend in this recipe?
Any type of cheddar will work in this recipe.
