Cheese and Bacon Potato RoundsPosted: August 21, 2013
I’ve been wanting to try this one forever. It’s got ALL of the comfort food ingredients: cheese, bacon, potatoes. The opportunity presented itself when my older sister bought her home, completely on her own. And she finished her college degree! I was so proud of her, I had to show her. For me, food is a language, a conversation, feelings. What better way to express myself then to host a house-warming party for her and to “cater” it, too!
4 baking potatoes cut into 1/2″ slices (my mandoline made quick work of this. Best purchase ever!)
1/4 cup melted butter
8 slices of bacon – cooked and crumbled (or more if my niece (aka bacon hound) is around)
8 oz shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2 chopped avocado
1/2 cup chopped green onions
Preheat oven to 400.
Brush both sides of potato slices with butter, place on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 15-20 minutes, turn slices over; bake remaining 15-20 minutes. Slices should be lightly browned on both sides. Remove slices and top with cheese and bacon. Pop back in oven and continue baking until cheese is melted. Allow to cool slightly, top with avocado, sliced green onions, and small dollop of sour cream.
Serves – Approximately 15 potato slices
Prep time: 20 minutes; Cook time: 40 minutes
