Award Winning Spuds

1 lb. of sliced bacon cut into small pieces
1 large onion, chopped
4 to 6 hot links sliced into chunks
5 lbs. of potatoes pealed and sliced thin
1 pound of grated cheese
12 inch Dutch oven

Brown bacon pieces in oven over 12 to 14 coals. When bacon is almost finished, add hot links. Be careful not to over cook the hot links. Just lightly brown them. Now add onions. Let them cook with the meat for 2 to 3 minutes. Add sliced potatoes. Stir everything together. Make sure all the meat is distributed as evenly as possible through the potatoes. Season to taste. (We use garlic salt and black pepper.) Cook with 12 to 14 coals under the oven and 10 to 12 on top for 30 to 40 minutes, or until potatoes and onions are done. This will need to be stirred at least once when cooking. Don't stir too much unless you like "potato mush"! When they are finished take them off the coals, add the cheese, and cover again. Allow cheese to melt and serve. Feeds 8 to 10 hungry people.

*Note: 1 large bag of potato shreds can be substituted for the fresh potatoes to save time.
