Sprite Potatoes

We tried this recipe about a year ago and really liked it. Then somehow I forgot about it. My husband was really excited when I told him we were having them again. You might look at the recipe and think that it just doesn't work, but it really does. The bacon, the cheese, the onions and then the sprite adds just a touch of sweetness. They are really good!

Sprite Potatoes

1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 lb. bacon, chopped
5-6 potatoes, peeled and sliced thin
9-10 baby carrots, sliced thin
seasoned salt
onion salt
garlic salt
1-2 cans Sprite

In a large pot/skillet saute onion and bacon together until onion is translucent and bacon is crispy. Add potatoes, carrots and seasonings to taste. Stir together. Add sprite, just enough to cover the potatoes.
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 generously with grated colby jack cheese or cheddar cheese and let stand for 3-5 minutes, or until melted. Enjoy!!
