Do you love potatoes? I love potatoes! You know who doesn’t? My hips and tights;) This really sucks…because EVERYTHING is better with a baked potato! Ok…ummm maybe it’s just me;)
I wanted a way that I could have yummy baked potatoes without ruining all my hard work at Zumba! Hmmm how about baked potatoes in bite sized pieces?!?!
Baked Potato Sliders
What you’ll need:
3-4 medium Yukon Gold Potatoes (this was more than enough for my family of 5)
1/4 C. Olive Oil
Black Pepper (to taste…I like a ton)
Salt (taste…I do very little)
1/2 C. Grated Cheese (I like the Mexican blend)
4-6 slices of crispy bacon (you can use prepackaged real bacon as well)
Pre Heat Oven to 450*
Mix olive oil, black pepper, salt in a bowl
Slice Potatoes in thin slices (1/4 inch-ish)
Let’s get started!!
Place sliced potatoes in the bowl of olive oil, pepper and salt. Make sure all the slices a generously covered in the mixture.
Allow them to cook in the oven for about 12 minutes
Flip after 12min and sprinkle the already cooked side with grated cheese (don’t worry about making a mess all over the cookie sheet!)
Put back in the oven for 10 minutes
After removing from the oven carefully place all slices on a cooling rack
Serve either warm or room temp, they will good either way!
There are many different way I like to serve these:
Baked Potato Style: Top with chives and a dolip of sour cream
BLT Potatoes: chopped tomatoes and chopped avocado
Dippin Style: served with a bowl of Homemade Avocado Ranch
1 large ripe avocado
You can either purée this together or chop the avocado and add chunks to the ranch (my kids like it both ways)
The Veggie Style: Omit the bacon and add sautéed portabella mushrooms and sautéed onions or chopped chives
As you can see the possibilities are endless!
These are great served as a side for anything from sandwiches to Grilled Steak!
I really hope you enjoy these as well!!
