  • Author: Carole



  • 5 pounds red potatoes, sliced about a 1/4 inch thick
  • 46 cloves of garlic minced
  • 2 bags of real bacon pieces (not that fake stuff!)
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/3 C butter, melted
  • splash of beer
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • grated cheddar cheese


1.  Combine all the ingredients, except for the cheese, in a large baking dish.  Cover with foil and roast over a hot grill or in a 450 degree oven until the potatoes are fork tender, stirring about half way through the process.  It will take between 30-45 minutes depending on the thickness of your potatoes and the size of your dish.
2.  Remove the foil and sprinkle the top of the potatoes with a generous amount of shredded cheddar cheese.  Return to the heat for about 5-7 more minutes until the cheese melt
