I just love bite sized food and turning any of my families favorites into them. My big guy is home from college and in need of some home cooked meals, so I thought I would have some fun and take one of his favs and turn them into a yummy side dish for him to enjoy.
Here is what you will need:
- 12 small red potatoes
- 2 tablespoons butter – melted
- 6 ounces of shredded cheddar cheese
- 3 slices of thick bacon – cooked and crumbled
- 2 green onions – sliced
- sour cream
- salt & pepper
Here is what you need to do:
Clean your small red potatoes and place them on a parchment lined baking sheet. Cook for 30 minutes at 400 degrees. Meanwhile, fry up your bacon, shred the cheese and slice the green onion.
When the potatoes are ready, slice them in half and brush them with the melted butter. Sprinkle with salt & pepper.
Top each potato half with cheese and place under a broiler until cheese is melted. Make sure to keep an eye on them, they are small and can burn quickly.
When the cheese is melted, top with crumbled bacon and slices of green onion.
I love to add a tiny dollop of sour cream to each and serve them up next to a nice, juicy piece of grilled skirt steak.
Hope you like them….
