Tators, Cheese & Bacon

Updated: Mar 28, 2019

Lord Honey, no meal should ever be without a tator--or bacon, or cheese for that matter. Don't even think about sitting down to the table without this one.

"Ooey Cheesy Bacon Tators" It's a new take on the old standard scalloped tators--just with a "Country Bling" kick. Granny will smile and slap her gums on this one.
