Cheesy Bacon Potato Bites

Holy Yum! These were too good. You just can't go wrong with cheese, bacon, and potatoes. I actually made them for a all women get together but after the fact I realized these are probably considered total man food. ha, ha Oh well. They were delicious. In fact, my husband stole quite a few before he got kicked out of the house full of women. He begged me to save him some, and of course, I did. It's the perfect appetizer.

Cheesy Bacon Potato Bites

2 lbs. potatoes, I used 3 large potatoes
6 slices of bacon, cooked, drained & chopped (reserve 1 tablespoon of the bacon grease).
2 cups medium cheddar cheese, shredded
4 green onions, chopped
salt & pepper to taste

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Brush cookie sheet5. Sprinkle with shredded cheese, salt and pepper to taste and chopped bacon. very lightly with reserved bacon grease.
2. Wash & slice potatoes, somewhere between 1/4 and 1/8 inch thick. I like them best on the thick side.
3. Place potato slices in a large pot, cover with water & cook until water boils. Boil for about 5 minutes or less, depending on the thickness of your potatoes. You DON'T want them cooked through, and you definitely still want them firm or they will fall apart.
4. Carefully drain potatoes and arrange on prepared cookie sheet, shingle style, slightly overlapping. Lightly brush potatoes with reserved bacon grease. Or if you are anti-bacon grease, brush with vegetable oil or olive oil.
5.Bake for 15 minutes until potatoes are cooked through. I placed it under the broiler for 2 minutes after baking for a little extra crunch. Top with chopped green onions.
