Oh these were so yummy! While they would make a fantastic appetizer, these were great for supper and seriously you can't go wrong with bacon and cheese. There might have been a common theme with all of the appetizers I made this night... whoops! :) I wasn't super excited about these once they cooled down, so make sure you eat them up the first go round... It won't be hard, believe me!
Cheesy Bacon Potato Bites
(Recipe found at inspiredreamer.com via pinterest)
2 pounds potatoes, I used 3 large potatoes
6 slices of bacon, cooked, drained and chopped
2 cups medium cheddar cheese, shredded
4 green onions, chopped
salt & pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray. Wash and slice potatoes, somewhere between 1/4 and 1/8 inch thick. Place potato slices in a large pot, cover with water and cook until water boils. Boil for about 5 minutes or less, depending on the thickness of your potatoes. You DON'T want them cooked through, and you definitely still want them firm or they will fall apart. Carefully drain potatoes and arrange on prepared cookie sheet, shingle style, slightly overlapping. Lightly brush potatoes with olive oil.
Sprinkle with shredded cheese, salt and pepper to taste and chopped bacon. Bake for 15 minutes until potatoes are cooked through. I placed it under the broiler for 2 minutes after baking for a little extra crunch. Top with chopped green onions.
