Loaded Skillet Potato Bites

Pin It
Do you love potatoes like we do?  I mean, could you eat them morning, noon, night, as a snack, for dessert, at 2 am while you're letting the dog out? Cause that's how much we love potatoes around here (except for that man I'm married to.  Don't know what happened to him in the potato loving department).
I am always looking for new blogs to follow and Facebook pages to stalk like.  So when I came across Big Bear's Wife I just had to take a look-see.  I mean with a cute name like that, who wouldn't want to see what she's got on her blog.  Angie is a very talented lady with some dynamite recipes and you NEED to go check out her blog now!  Well, maybe wait till after you read this post, okay?

I found this recipe for Loaded Potato Skillet and adapted it slightly to fit what I was in the mood for.

Needless to say these were a total HIT and my son ate almost the whole pan full.

Here's what you need:

2 Tbs. oil
2 large russet potatoes, washed and dried and sliced about 1/8" thick.  I use a mandolin for this type of slicing, but a very sharp knife would work too
1 tsp. seasoning salt, I use Red Robin seasoning
fresh cracked black pepper

To assemble:
1 cup Cheddar cheese, shredded
2 Tbs. bacon bit, made from leftover bacon
sour cream
2 green onions, sliced

Preheat oven to 425.

Wash, pat dry and slice the potatoes. Place into a bowl and toss with the oil, seasoning salt and pepper.
Place potatoes in a large cast iron skillet and bake for 30 minutes or until fork tender.
Remove from oven when fork tender and add the cheese.  Return to oven for 2-5 minutes or until cheese is all gooey and melted.
Sprinkle with bacon bits, green onions and sour cream.
Stuff in your face as fast as you can.  Enjoy with your family or all by yourself :)

  1. Hi Michelle,

    I'm your newest GFC follower! These potatoes look delicious. What's better than bacon and cheese, right? Come visit me at My Sesame Seed Buns sometime!

  2. We love potatoes, too! These look so, so good. I think these will make a great game day snack for the guys:)

  3. Carbs, carbs, I love CARBS! We love some potatoes around here - and add cheese and bacon...oh yes! Some of the same ingredients are in the Loaded Baked Potato & Buffalo Chicken Casserole that I posted today! Great minds...

  4. Why do I want to run to the store and buy ingredients after every single recipe you post?? Oh ya, because you are amazing! I don't always comment, but I always appreciate what you share!
