Loaded Skillet Potatoes

Posting this recipe onto my blog feels like I'm cheating because the recipe is just so easy.  The only reason that I'm sharing this 'recipe' is because it's one of my go-to dishes that I love to eat for a weekday lunch when I'm at home alone.  With 
no one to judge me and my eating habits. It sounds like it's a wicked, bad for your waist line and cholesterol treat ... and it is.  

As I've stated in the past I'm a HUGE potato lover.  I heart potatoes big time, y'all!!  My family?  Not so much.  So I feel like I have to use lunches when I'm on my own to satisfy the potato lover that dwells within me.  This is one of the recipes that I do so luurve.  It has fried potatoes, onions (times two!), mushrooms, cheese and bacon!  Topped with the delight that is full fat sour cream and I'm in heaven.  

I whole-heartedly admit that this isn't a heart healthy recipe but for me it sure is a soul healthy one!  This would make a great side dish for grilled sausages or other meats or, if you're like me, a main course for lunch.  Don't judge until you've tasted it. ;)

Yield: 2 servings

2-3 medium potatoes, peeled and sliced thinly
1 1/2 tbsp butter
1 medium onion, peeled and sliced
3 tbsp real bacon bits (or bacon cooked and crumbled)
1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
to taste -- salt and pepper or Club House's 'La Grille Vegetable seasoning' 

1/2 cup shredded marble cheese
2 green onions, sliced
sour cream

Heat a medium-sized skillet to medium-high heat.  Add butter and potatoes.  Place a cover (I use the lid of my large soup pot) over the skillet which will allow the potatoes to steam a bit.  Cook for 10 minutes.

Flip potatoes to help other pieces to brown.  Add sliced onions, bacon bits and mushrooms to the potatoes and cover.  Cook for another 10 minutes or until potatoes are soft.  Sprinkle shredded cheese over the potato mixture and cover until cheese has melted - a minute or two.

Remove from heat and serve onto plates.  Garnish with green onions and sour cream. Devour.
