I love being able to take left overs and turn them into something else. I’m not a huge fan of left overs unless it’s something DELICIOUS! I made these potato skin bites from left over baked potato!
I think this is going to be my go- to way to make these potato skin bites now. I will probably bake the potatoes a little less next time!
Next time you want a fun bar food, try these! Or if you have a left over baked potatoes they work wonderful!
Potato Skin Bites
2 potatoes, partially or fully baked
1-2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (or any kind of cheese)
6 slices cooked bacon, chopped
2 t garlic powder
2 t onion powder
2 t salt
2 t pepper
1 T olive oil
Directions: Preheat oven to 400. Drizzle olive oil to a baking sheet. Slice the potatoes about 1/2 inch thick and add the baking sheet. Sprinkle potatoes with garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Place in the oven or 15 minutes. Check the potatoes after 10 minutes. (Cook times will vary depending on how par-cooked your potatoes are) If they are crispy enough for you, remove from the oven and complete the following steps. If you like them crispier let cook a bit longer.
Once potatoes are cooked to your liking, remove from the oven. Add about a tablespoon of cheese (more or less if you want) and then top with a few pieces of bacon. Place back in the oven another 10 minutes so the cheese melts and gets all gooey and delicious!
Remove from the oven and top with optional toppings above. And enjoy!
