Creamy Bacon and Cheese Gnocchi

I love anything loaded baked potato inspired. Its simple, straightforward and easy. I was really in the mood for loaded potato soup but I really didn’t feel like dealing with a entire pot of soup. Especially since I’m expecting clam chowder in the next couple days. That’s just too much cream based soup for me. So to make this more of a meal I decided on gnocchi for a little more of a entrée feeling apposed to soup. Try it out and let me know what you think!


  • 1/2lb Bacon
  • 1 Shallot, minced
  • 4 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • 2Tb butter
