Loaded Baked Potato Bites
Instead of the same old oven roasted potatoes with the soup mix I decided to do some experimenting and who doesn't love potato skins? I tried to incorporate all the flavors of a loaded potato skin but make them in the oven instead of deep frying. I'm looking forward to seeing how they turn out!
4-6 medium sized russet potatoes (cut into chunks)
3 tablespoons oil (I used Canola)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup finely shredded sharp cheddar ( I used white cheddar)
6 bacon slices cooked and crumbled
Chives or Green Onion for garnish (I made mine without since I forgot to pick up the chives)
2 tablespoons Sour Cream
In an 8x8 glass dish toss potatoes and oil together until evenly coated. Add the remaining ingredients except chives and sour cream. Cook on 425 for 45 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Top with chives and sour cream. EDIT-Do not add the cheese until the last 15 minutes of cooking the potatoes.
