  • 2 ea Russet Potatoes about 2 lbs
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil

  • 3/4 c Cooked Bacon Crumbles about 5 slices of bacon
  • 4 Green Onions chopped
  • 2 tsp Seasoned Salt

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Cut bacon into 1/4 inch pieces and cook in a small skillet until crispy. Place on paper towel and set aside.
  • Slice two russet potatoes into 1/4 inch coins and place into a large freezer bag.
  • Add olive oil, seasoned salt and pepper to bag. Shake to coat.
  • Place potatoes on a baking sheet, without overlapping and bake for 15 minutes. This time can vary depending upon how thick you slice the spuds.
  • While potatoes are cooking, grate 1 cup of cheddar cheese and chop green onions.
  • Remove pan from oven and top each potato with a generous amount of cheese and bacon. Return to the oven for 3-5 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
  • Transfer to a serving dish and top each with a small dollop of sour cream and sprinkle with green onions.
  • Serve immediately.


Although I recommend you serve these guys immediately, they hold up well as an appetizer and are delicious even when they have cooled.
