Cheddar Bacon Spud Chips
After a fun, glorious Thanksgiving celebration hither at our solid yesterday, today has been a solar daytime of relaxation, snuggling alongside the kids together with dancing around the kitchen to Christmas music.
While many are enjoying Thanksgiving leftovers today, my kids asked me to brand loaded baked potatoes. But, I decided to come upward with a twist together with brand these instead. It turned out to be the perfect finger nutrient lunch while nosotros curled upward together with watched Toy Story 3 on t.v. My crew gobbled these babies upward therefore quick together with begged for me to brand to a greater extent than this weekend!
The married adult man is at move today, therefore this made but plenty for the iii kiddos together with I. If you're feeding a larger crowd, yous may desire to double the recipe.
One of my most-popular posts to-date has been my Roasted Ranch Potatoes alongside Bacon together with Cheese. This is form of a play on that recipe, but requires no fork together with in that place is no ranch dressing inwards this recipe. Also, I used jarred existent bacon pieces inwards this, but I'm certain regular cooked bacon would live on fifty-fifty better!
I'm thinking these would live on fabulous political party nutrient or cracking for a cozy moving painting nighttime inwards alongside the family!
2 large potatoes, scrubbed together with skins left on
Dried dill weed

Sprinkle potatoes alongside salt, pepper, dill weed together with paprika. (You're looking for but a lite dusting of each on each round.)
Drizzle on a lite coating of olive oil.
Kind of rub the crude oil across each spud to coat evenly.
Bake for twenty - 25 minutes inwards the oven until potatoes are starting to crisp upward together with but brown. You're looking for the bottoms to live on pretty crispy.
Remove from oven together with accommodate them form of overlapping similar yous would if yous were making nachos.
Let me but tell that the baked "chips" themselves are divine just as they are - without the cheese together with bacon. We ate several "naked" ones but standing at the counter earlier nosotros fifty-fifty topped them!
Sprinkle cheese on each round. Top alongside bacon.
Return to oven together with bake but until cheese is melted together with bacon is warmed through (about five minutes).
Remove from oven together with transcend alongside sliced scallions. Serve alongside sour cream or ranch dressing.
