Western Potato Rounds

This would be a great side dish for those 4th of July get-togethers!

2 large unpeeled baking potatoes (about 1 1/2 lb.)
Vegetable oil
1 C. (4 oz.) shredded Colby-Jack cheese
6 bacon slices, crisply cooked, drained and crumbled
1/3 C. green onion slices
1/4 C. barbecue sauce

Preheat oven to 450°F. Cut potatoes into 1/4-inch thick slices. Generously spray both sides of the potato slices with oil; spread on baking pan in one even layer. Bake 20 minutes or until lightly browned; remove from oven.

In bowl, combine cheese, bacon, and green onion. Generously brush potato slices with barbecue sauce; sprinkle with cheese mixture. Return potato slices to oven. Bake 3-5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Yields 24 rounds.

Tips: Leaving the peel on the potatoes will help keep the shape of the baked potato slices. The potato slices will cook more evenly when sliced to the same thickness.

WHOA NELLIE! Those sound delicious. That will be my next new potato recipe. Thanks Terri. I will skip the BBQ sauce though, not a big fan of BBQ on potatoes. LOL I might make these for the 4th when we cook out.
