These potatoes taste like skins with the works and sour cream but they are boiled, not fried. The bacon is baked on a slotted broiler pan so the fat falls away. The sour cream is replaced with buttermilk, which is tangy but made from skimmed milk. I use whole milk Cheddar but it is super sharp so a little goes a long way!
