  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Cut potatoes into fourths and place in a large bowl with onion. Add olive oil, cumin, salt, and pepper, toss to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator until oven is preheated.

  3. Spread potato-onion mixture in an even layer on a baking sheet. Place butter on top of the potatoes, 1 piece at each corner.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until potatoes are tender, about 30 minutes.

  5. While potatoes are baking, cook bacon in a skillet over medium heat, stirring frequently, until evenly browned, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.

  6. Transfer cooked potatoes to a serving platter. Top with Cheddar cheese and bacon.
