My father-in-law, Boyd, was the inspiration for this recipe! Everyone who tries it loves it! It goes great with the marinated flank steak!!!
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 lb. bacon, chopped
Cook in big pot until onion is translucent and bacon is starting to crisp.
6-7 Idaho potatoes, peeled and sliced thin
9-10 baby carrots sliced thin
Stir and season to taste with the following:
1 liter sprite or 7-up ( i like sprite the best)
and enough water to just cover potatoes ( or you can add enough sprite to cover potatoes and forget about the water.) Cover and bring to a boil. simmer for about 15-20 minutes or until potatoes and carrots are tender and most of the liquid has reduced. Cover with grated colby jack cheese and let melt ( about 3-5 more minutes). Dig in!
