Colorado Potato Hash/Featruing: The Russet Potato – Jason K. Morse

This is a great that can be made using some common on hand ingredients. A very good way to use up those extra baked potatoes, or to create a simple side dish to go with a nice Grilled Steak or Chicken dish. Use this recipe as a guideline, it has flexibility to use other varieties of potatoes, or other ingredients can be added to make your own signature side dish. The applewood bacon gives it a nice Smokey flavor, and helps pull the dish together. You can substitute any cheese for the Blue Cheese, we find teh creaminess of the blue cheese gives it that final touch. Enjoy!
