One of the things I like about going on vacation is eating out and trying new foods. While we were in Myrtle Beach for spring break, we found a pizza restaurant named Mellow Mushroom. I coaxed my daughter and husband into trying the "Hot Potato Pie." Hey, how can you go wrong with crust, potatoes, bacon, and sour cream? We loved it!
When I got home, at some point, I thought, "Hey I can do that! Basically it's just crust, potatoes, bacon, and sour cream!" I tried it a few weeks ago and we all loved it again. So I made it again last night and took a picture.
It's not exactly like the one at Mellow Mushroom, but still really good! Of course I used all the best short cuts to make it and rolling out the dough in a perfect shape makes no sense when you're hungry!
I used a package of pizza crust mix and followed the directions to make it.
On top of that I put a sour cream and cream cheese mixture - probably about a cup of sour cream and 2 ounces of cream cheese.
Next I added about 3 slices of diced, microwaved bacon and a microwaved, diced potato.
Finally, I sprinkled on shredded colby and monteray jack cheeses and baked the pizza according to the crust mix directions.
I made two of these last night. I refrigerated 5 slices. They were gone before I woke up this morning. That's how it works around our house if something is really good!
