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
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.
