Loaded Baked Potato Wedges
This recipe was made with my game day fans in mind, but if you’re not into sports this is still a great appetizer for any occasion.
I would call myself a social sports fan. I like to watch sports with a group or even live, but other than that I’m not that interested unless it’s the Olympics.
Maybe it’s the thrill of it all. Whether you’re are a sports fan or not, most of us enjoy a good appetizer, like these baked potato wedges.
These potatoes were dredged with butter and lightly seasoned with seasoning salt. They were then baked in the oven until tender.
Once removed from the oven they were loaded with all the fixings- bacon, shredded cheese, sour cream and fresh chives (green onion).
I’m not very particular about eating green onion, but there is something about fresh chives on potato wedges that gives them an extra boost of flavor.
Let’s talk about this bacon because, besides the potato, the bacon is the star of the show. Of course, fresh bacon was used for this recipe. Fresh, thick cut bacon. I prefer Kroger store brand bacon, but use whatever your favorite brand is.
I do recommend thick cut bacon due to the texture. The potato slices are somewhat thick so a thick cut of bacon best compliments these potatoes.
Cut your bacon into small pieces and fry in a pan, stirring occasionally. Once the bacon is done, remove from the pan and drain the excess oil on a paper towel.
These little potato wedges are so addicting!
Although they are considered an appetizer, depending on you how many you choose to eat they could very well turn into a meal. This is why I noted the serving size for two to three people.
I figured that most people will at least eat two, but two become three and three become four right? So, of course, you have to consider your appetite and the appetite of others when creating this recipe.
So tell me something…
