baked potato rounds...

2 large russet potatoes
4-5 slices bacon, cooked & crumbled
cheddar & monterey jack cheese; shredded
1 green onion; chopped
sour cream
olive oil
salt & pepper

Slice potatoes in 1/4 in thick rounds. Place on a baking sheet & brush each side lightly with olive oil & sprinkle with salt & pepper. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 min. Turn and continue baking for another 10-15 min. Remove from oven and sprinkle with cheese. Return to oven just until cheese is melted. Finish off with bacon, onions & sour cream.

Really, really, really good. This is a great way to enjoy eating a loaded baked potato...on a much smaller scale. They were quick to throw together, which is always a bonus. If you have a few stray potatoes hanging around this is a great way to use them up. If you don't have any hanging around...go buy some and make these!!
This was another fabulous recipe from Amber's Kitchen.

Oh YUM! Too bad we didn't have this recipe on Sunday--much better than Queso dip.

Too funny, we must be true foodie friends to be on the same wavelength.

These will be awesome for next year's Superbowl...or maybe next week!

Ooh good happy hour snack! These sound good and nice and light compared to typical potato skins.

I also love your blog header! Very cute.
