Last weeks menu included cheesy bacon potato slices for Monday night. I started making these because my family liked the potato skins from them Schwans truck and I was trying to find a lower cost alternative. I made these and now my family preferrs them over the Schwans ones. Here is the recipe complete with pictures.
4-5 medium baking potatoes
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 C shredded cheddar cheese
3 slices bacon
salt and pepper
Salt and pepper the potato slices. Shred your cheddar cheese (I prefer to use block cheese but you can use store bought shredded cheese if you want) and mince your bacon (I cooked my own bacon crispy and then minced it but you can use bacon bits) and sprinkle them evenly on each of the slices.
Place in a 350 degree oven and bake for 15 – 20 minutes.
