Units of Measurement:
1 Pound sliced bacon
6 Large russet potatoes
1/2 Cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cold, thinly sliced

To Taste Freshly ground black pepper
To Taste melted butter
1 Cup shredded cheddar cheese
3 scallions, thinly sliced


  • 1

    Place the bacon in the freezer for 30 minutes to chill.

  • 2

    When ready to cook, set the Traeger temperature to 350℉ and preheat with the lid closed for 15 minutes.

  • 3

    On a cutting board, place two chopsticks on either long side of a potato. Cut the potatoes into 1/8-inch-thick slices, stopping where the knife meets the chopsticks to leave about 1/4 inch attached on the bottom. Repeat with the remaining potatoes.

  • 4

    Remove the bacon from the freezer. Using a sharp knife, cut the bacon into 1-inch pieces. Wedge the bacon into the potatoes between every other slice. Place thinly sliced butter between the other potato slices. Arrange the potatoes in a large cast iron skillet and season with salt and pepper.

    Place the cast iron skillet on the grill grates and close the lid. Cook the potatoes, basting with melted butter every 30 minutes, until tender, cooked through, and golden brown, about 2 hours.
