Baked Potato Sliders {yummy}


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)

Extra Toppings:

Sour Cream

Pre Heat Oven to 450*
Mix olive oil, black pepper, salt in a bowl
Slice Potatoes in thin slices (1/4 inch-ish)

Cook Bacon until crispy (be sure to dab all the grease off the bacon)
After the bacon has cooled coarsly chop


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.

Place slices on a cookie sheet (be sure not to overlap)

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

Then add a pinch of bacon to each potato slice (don’t wait until they have cooled or the bacon will fall off:(


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

Avocado Ranch:
1c. 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!!


Portobella Pesto Pizza {YUM!!}


Ultra gourmet pizza for a fast food price!!
We love pizza at our house but sometimes I get really sick of making red sauce spleen cheese or pepperoni pizzas so I decided I wanted to update the little bit with something a little bit more gourmet and grown up!
You’ll be surprised your kids will love it
You can either cook it in the oven or on the grill today I decided to cook it in the oven because it’s snowing outside
Makes 2 Pizzas:
  • 4 – 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 to 3  Portabella mushrooms
  • one small onion
  • a half a cup per pizza with pesto sauce (Either homemade or store-bought will work perfect for this pizza)
  • a cup of the Parmesan and Romano cheese per pizza (I like the already shredded cheese)
Pre Heat oven to 425
Step 1: mix dough and set aside
-pizza dough (You can either make homemade pizza dough or buy the boxed “just water” type of pizza dough both will work great for this recipe)
-Sauté portobello mushrooms and onions together in a pan with 2 tablespoons of olive oil
-Grease your pan this can be at pizza pan a cookie sheet or even a pizza stone I like my pizzas to be square so I’m using a square cookie sheet
-Roll out dough on your desired pan style. I like my pizza crust very thin so I roll the crust to all the edges…poke a few holes in the dough {the crust wont bubble and have air pockets}
-After my dough was rolled out I like to add a light coating of extra-virgin olive oil to the top of the crust before I add the toppings
– Cover crust with pesto sauce
– Add toppings
Bake at 425 for 15 – 20 minutes or until cheese is bubbly, remove from oven and let sit for a minimum of five minutes before you cut and serve
Mmmmmm Enjoy!!!
Be ready to hand out seconds!!!
