Another great potato side!

Are any of you obsessed with potatoes like I am?!

II mean, how can you NOT love them? They are so tasty and can be prepared in so many ways. I recently made Loaded Baked Potato Rounds that were a HUGE hit with the family.

We made them as an appetizer and dipped them in sour cream, but these would also be great as a side dish.

I love that they are also so simple and quick and just require cutting up the potatoes and then topping off with the “good stuff” like cheese and bacon! 😉

If you’re looking for a simple appetizer recipe or side for the potato-lover, then give this recipe a try. It’s delicious! You can dip these little rounds in any kind of dressing or dip, but sour cream works great too!

How to make Baked Potato Rounds

PREP. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Begin by washing potatoes and slicing into thin rounds (about 1/4″ thick).

BOIL. Place potatoes in a pot filled with water and bring to a boil. Cook for 3-4 minutes. Drain and pat dry potatoes.

BAKE. Place foil on a baking pan and spray with cooking spray. Place potatoes on pan. Brush lightly with melted butter. Sprinkle on garlic salt, cheeses and crumbled bacon pieces. Bake for 12-14 minutes and serve with sour cream.

Recipe Tips

Ensure crispy potato rounds. The thinner the potato rounds the easier it is for them to be crispy. Make sure to keep them as thin as possible, just not wafer or paper thin, then they won’t support the weight of the cheese or toppings.

Use premade bacon crumbles instead of stinking up the house with cooking bacon as a shortcut.

SToring Info

STORE leftover potato rounds in an airtight container in the fridge layered between pieces of parchment paper. Reheat in the microwave or in the oven until they are warmed through. 

If you do need to cut the potatoes ahead of time you should keep them in a container full of water, this will prevent them from getting brown and gross.

  1. Obsessed with potatoes?! I am pretty sure my husband would only eat potatoes if he could (maybe he is a giant potato under all that skin!) He would love these, and so would I! Cannot wait to give them a go!

  2. Your trip sounds like it was amazing, but I know what you mean about it being hard to be away from the kids! Your potatoes look delish! I’m always looking for new recipes to liven them up!

  3. These are my absolute favorite appetizer, side dish, main course… 😀 Thank you for the shout out! xo

    1. Of course, Katerina!! They are now a new favorite!! Thanks for the recipe because we’ll be making it a ton more now. 🙂

  4. This looks like a crowd-please so I’m hoping to try this recipe on Saturday for a football party! Could you clarify the cooking time? The recipe says to cook for 3-4 minutes in water. Are the potatoes added while the water is cold? And, since it takes a while to boil a large pot of water, I want to make sure that the 3-4 minutes is from the time the water starts boiling? I don’t want to over-cook the potatoes! 🙂 Thanks! ~Tammy

        I actually went home and made these last night haha.

        We don’t have monteray jack cheese in Aus, so I substituted for what we call ‘tasty cheese’ which is basically just a sharp cheddar.

        Also made a small add on of my own which is Jalepeno salsa. Finely diced Jalapenos, butter pickles, red onion, coriander and raspberry vinegar.

        This recipe is a winner 🙂

  5. Once this are cooked, could you freeze this for a later date. If so how long do you think they would last in the freezer? Great recipes.

    1. Thank you so much!! I personally haven’t tried freezing, so I’m not sure how long they’d last or if they’d be ok. One way to find out 😉

    These look these are on my list!

    We usually have the full size stuffed spuds loaded with with our the ever popular cheese and Bacon.

    Maybe I’ll get cooking now 🙂

    1. It depends on how much or how big the serving is, but you could feed a family of 4-6. I hope that helps!

    This is one of our new favorite to go recipes. I can make it up earlier, cover with foil, and pop in the oven last minute. And perfect for my vegetarian friends 1/2 bacon/1/2 smoked paprika for extra flavor. And I love that it can be served right off the sheet!
