Food Friday - Loaded Potato Bites

Today I am participating in the Restless Blog Hop!!

young and restless

Thanks for visiting, all you new and pre-existing readers!!

For those who are new, you should know that every Friday, as a celebration of the weekend, I post a recipe I think you'll love. Other recipes I have posted in the past can be found here. Let me know what you think!

Now today is one of my favorite recipes to share. It. Is. Bomb. (Yes, I brought "bomb" back.)

I love LOVE potatoes/carbs/obviously healthy foods. I kid.

But seriously, easy apps when you have company? There's nothing better. Also, as a disclaimer, this is just a GUIDELINE! Feel free to add things and remove things as you see fit.

The recipe for the dipping sauce helps a LOT. It is amazing. You can spice up as you wish, or just use plain ol' ranch!!


Potatoes:
  • 2 large russet potatoes scrubbed and sliced. I used my mandolin so the pieces were all the same.
  • 1.5 Cups shredded colby jack cheese
  • salt & pepper
    • 4 Tablespoons crumbled bacon (you can use slices OR the Oscar Meyer Bacon Pieces (which I used)).
  • chopped parsley
Preheat oven to 375*.

Place sliced potatoes in a kettle of cold water and bring to a boil, covered for 5 minutes.

Carefully (so they don't fall apart) drain, and transfer slices to a paper towel on the counter top.  Pat to dry.

On a greased baking sheet, lay out potato slices so they are overlapping on it.  Spray lightly with additional cooking spray, then sprinkle with salt & pepper.  Sprinkle evenly with shredded cheese & bacon.  Bake 12-14 minutes in preheated oven until cheese is melted & bubbly.

Serve with ranch.

Spicy Ranch
  • 3 Tablespoons ranch dressing
  • 9 Tablespoons sour cream
  • 3/4 teaspoons chipotle chili powder
  • 3/8 teaspoons cayenne (adjust more or less depending on how spicy you want).
  • salt to taste
  • 3/8 teaspoons garlic powder
Place all ingredients in a small bowl, and whisk till smooth.

ENJOY!!
