  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the potatoes and onions. Cook until the onions are golden brown and the potatoes are tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Stir in the blue cheese and bacon, continue to cook until the blue cheese begins to melt. Season with salt and pepper.

I have read all the reviews. I made these tonight. They were wonderful. I add a few caveats- 1) Don't be in a hurry. The potatoes need time to cook. 2) Add the onions about 7 minutes after the potatoes so they don't cook down to nothing. 3) I had to add some liquids to get all the good browned bits off the bottom during the potato cooking time- first time I added about 1/3 c of the chardonnay I was drinking. 2nd time I added about 1/3 c of chicken broth/stock from a can. This allowed the potatoes to steam a little- I left the cover off the potatoes the whole time. 4) I didn't use 3 slices of bacon. I used maybe 1 1/5 slices and browned them first in the skillet. I took the crispy pieces out and processed them in a small food processor. I mopped up 3/4 of the grease w/ a paper towel, but left a little for flavor and 5) I only used about 1 1/2 T of butter. I also added salt and fresh ground pepper. I suppose the wine and the chicken broth made up for the lack of butter, but I felt better about it being a little lower in fat content. I used 5 oz of bleu cheese. They were WONDERFUL. We ate them with filet mignon on the grill and sweet peas. Delicious- you just have to take your time for the best results. You won't be disappointed.

Delicious - the 2 potatoes only served the "2" of us!!! I microwaved the potatoes for 5 minutes, then peeled and sliced them. The potatoes then did cook through in 15 minutes. (If you microwave the potatoes first you can slice them and the onions and prepare it earlier in the day.)



I made these last night and served them with a grilled flank steak, my family LOVED them. My husband (your typical baked potatoe with sour cream guy) told me I needed to make them everytime we have steak. They were SO easy to make and had a very nice flavor, I didn't have enough blue cheese crumbles, but I think we still got a good bit of flavor with what I had, about 1/2 of what was called for.
