Cheesy Bacon Oven Chips

Cheesy Bacon Oven Chips 

  • 1 large, uniformly-shaped russet potato, scrubbed well and sliced into 1/8″ rounds*
  • cooking spray
  • 3/4 C. shredded colby jack or cheddar cheese
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 2 T. crumbled bacon (about 2 slices) – I used real bacon bits
  • chopped parsley or chives, for garnish (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Bring sliced potatoes to a boil in cold, salted water to cover for 5 minutes.  Carefully drain, and transfer slices to a paper-towel lined countertop or cutting board.  Pat to dry.

Grease a baking sheet with cooking spray, and lay out potato slices so they are overlapping on it.  Spray lightly with additional cooking spray, then sprinkle with salt & pepper to taste.  Sprinkle evenly with shredded cheese & bacon.  Bake 12-14 minutes in preheated oven until cheese is melted & bubbly.  Serve with chipotle ranch sauce (recipe below).  Serves 2.

*You can use 2 medium-sized potatoes rather than 1 large.  Also, I like to leave the skin on but you can peel the potatoes if you prefer.
