A few months ago, we were wandering aimlessly around the Internet and found a recipe for the Best Baked Potato, Ever. Well, to be specific: it was a picture and we clicked on it. Recipe was vague and all the comments were in Spanish. But the idea was so brilliant, and simple. We've been dreaming about it ever since.
1 Yukon Gold potato
2 slices bacon
Cut the potato in 1/4-inch slices, taking care not to cut all the way through (we laid the potato on a cutting board, and placed two wood spoons on either side). Cut the bacon into enough slices to fit into the cuts in the potato. Bake in a 400-degree oven for an hour to an hour and a half, until done. Next time we try this - and there will be a next time - we will base it with the bacon drippings halfway through. Cheddar cheese on top? Lips say no, but eyes say yes. Come to Butthead.
