Cheesy Onions W/Peppers & Garlic Supper Potatoes

I usually make a version of these potatoes for breakfast, but switched up just a few of the ingredients & made these for supper/dinner.

The DOUBLE CHEDDAR ADDITION really added a lot of flavor. I added the Kerry Gold White BallyShannon Cheddar Cheese as well as Mild cheddar, & then using crumbled bacon for the additional flavor, really ENHANCED THE FLAVORS OF THIS DISH, not to mention the 3 types of onions & the colorful sweet peppers that I used.

The aroma was so strong you could smell it outside. My neighbor asked me what was I cooking? Said it really smelled like dinner time. SMILE
