Sprite Potatoes

This recipe reminds me a lot of the dutch oven potatoes my aunt makes.  Her recipe can be found  here. This recipe is a stovetop version that is yummy as well!  I found this recipe on Peachtree Cooking.  So next time you are craving some potatoes from the dutch oven, and don't want to heat up the coals, try these yummy taters!

1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 lb. bacon, chopped

Cook in big pot/skillet until onion is translucent and bacon is starting to crisp.

Then add:
5-6 potatoes, peeled and sliced thin (more or less depending on how much you want)
9-10 baby carrots sliced thin

Stir and season to taste with the following:
seasoned salt
onion salt
garlic salt

1-2 cans sprite, enough to just 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 melt (about 3-5 more minutes).

Sometimes we add a little more sprite to keep them from drying out before the potatoes and carrots are all the way done. We also leave a little liquid in the bottom when we put the cheese on so it's not to dry) YUMMY!!
