Loaded Potato Skin Bites Recipe – These loaded potato skin bites include everything you love about loaded potato skins in an easy bite!
One of my absolute most favorite appetizers has always been loaded potato skins. Always.
And I am so excited about sharing this fun way to make them with you! These Loaded Potato Skin Bites!
I love that each one is just a bite (or maybe two if you want to be conservative) and that they are easy as can be to throw together for a party or get together.
And you know, they are just perfect for watching all of the college football games this weekend!
To make them, I start with Russet potatoes that I’ve scrubbed clean and then slice rather thinly, but still thick enough to hold up to any toppings that I might add.
I arrange the slices on a parchment lined baking sheet and then drizzle on olive oil and sprinkle with salt. I use a good bit of salt since potatoes can be a bit bland. The salt just helps to flavor them as much as possible.
Then, I sprinkle on freshly ground black pepper and bake them until they are fork tender in the center, about 20 minutes.
Then, I turn the oven to broil and top each slice with a bit of shredded cheese and pop them back under the broiler for the cheese to melt, about 3 minutes or so.
And then, I finish them up by topping them with whatever my little heart desires!
Sour cream, chopped green onions, crispy bacon pieces, you name it. The skies the limit.
Here’s my Loaded Potato Skin Bites Recipe. I hope you love them and that your favorite team wins (unless they are playing mine! 🙂 )
