Potato What???

I saw this recipe on one of my favorite blogs & on the WC board. From the title I had no idea what they were, but the picture says it all - it's basically a cross between a potato skin and a loaded baked potato -and they were delicious! It's such an easy appetizer that was the perfect compliment to cheeseburgers. I just made a few changes to change up the flavors from the original recipe to go with the flavors I had in the burgers, and I topped them with some sour cream and green onions after I took the picture.

Loaded Potato Slabs
Amber's Delectable Delights

2 russet potatoes I used 3
Salt, to taste I used garlic salt
Black pepper, to taste
Paprika, to taste I used some Montreal steak seasoning
1/3 cup colby-jack cheese I used sharp cheddar
5 slices of bacon, cooked and diced
Green onions for garnish, if desired
Sour cream, if desired


1. Preheat oven to 375. Clean and scrub potatoes well. Slice the potatoes into 1/4" thick slices. Place potatoes on lightly buttered baking sheet and season each side with salt, black pepper, and paprika. Cook for 30 minutes. Flip potatoes over and cook for an additional 15 minutes.

2. Remove pan from oven and place a pinch of cheese and bacon on top of each potato slab. Return the pan to the oven and cook until cheese is melted and bubbly, about 10 minutes. Serve with green onions and sour cream, if desired.
