Barbecue Potato Skins

Barbecue Potato Skins

January is a big month for football and parties surrounding watching the games. So this month I will be posting appetizer recipes that are perfect for serving at your next party. Over the weekend I made this to bring our friend’s house while we watched the Chiefs vs. Titans game. They are Kansas City fans so I used some authentic KC barbecue sauce which made these Barbecue Potato Skins a big hit with everyone.

First, the ingredients: potatoes, olive oil, barbecue sauce, cheddar cheese, green onions and cooked bacon.


Wash your potatoes and slice them into 1/4 inch thick slices. I used a crinkle cutter for this but you can also slice with a regular knife. Next, cook 6 slices of bacon and chop it up into crumbles.

Lay out the slices on a baking sheet and brush both sides of each potato slice with olive oil. Now they are ready to bake in a 450-degree oven for 20 minutes.

In a bowl combine the shredded cheddar cheese, green onions and bacon crumbles.

When the potatoes finish baking remove them from the oven and brush each one with barbecue sauce.

Top each potato slice with the cheese mixture and return to the oven to bake for 5 more minutes until cheese is melted and slightly browned.

Serve these right away and make sure to get one for yourself because they won’t last long!
