Western Potato Rounds

Every year, my husband’s parents make a big spread of appetizers and invite the extended family over to watch the Super Bowl. This recipe is always a favorite. I made these one day for my family, and they were gone within ten minutes.


What you need:



  • 2 large unpeeled baking potatoes
  • vegetable oil
  • 1 c. shredded Colby Jack cheese (or cheddar)
  • 6 bacon slices, crisply cooked and crumbled
  • 1/3 c green onion slices
  • 1/4 c barbecue sauce


  • mandoline slicer or sharp knife
  • cutting board
  • medium bowl and spoon
  • basting brush
  • pizza stone

Time:10 minutes prep, 25 minutes baking

Freezeable: No.

Serves: Makes about 2 dozen rounds.

Multiplying the recipe: Yes, it’s do-able, but you shouldn’t crowd the stone too much, so you’ll have to bake the batches separately.

Western Potato Rounds:

Preheat the oven to 375F. Spray the pizza stone with the oil. Lay the rounds on the stone in a single layer, and spray the tops with oil. Bake them for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, mix the cheese, bacon, and green onion together in a bowl.

Take the rounds out of the oven. Brush them with barbecue sauce and sprinkle the cheese mixture evenly over the tops. Return the stone to the oven for 3-5 minutes, until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
