    Cut the potatoes. On a cutting board, place two wooden spoons on either side of the potato, to prevent your knife from going all the way through. Slice the potatoes into thin chips leaving about 1/4-inch attached on the bottom. Repeat with remaining potatoes.

    • 6 Large russet potatoes

  • 4

    Remove the bacon from the freezer. Using a sharp knife, cut the bacon into 1-inch pieces, about the size of a stamp. Place the cold bacon into the cracks of the potatoes, between every other slice. Place thinly sliced cold butter between the other slices of the potatoes.

    Ingredients

    • 1/2 Cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cold, plus additional melted butter, as needed
