Cheesy Potato Snacks with Bacon

Duke was working out in the garage last night, so I knew we would have a late dinner.

Well, this girl got hungry. So I made a snack. Duke loved them.

What you need:

1 large red potato (per person, so I used 2)
shredded cheddar cheese
crumbled bacon slices or bacon bits
salt and pepper (to taste)
100% canola oil spray
aluminum foil
bowl of cold water

How to make:

Preheat an oven to 400 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil. Peel the potatoes that you will use (or don't because red potato skins are tasty!). Cut the potato into about 1/4 inch thick slices. Stick 'em in a bowl of cold water until the oven is heated.

Now, spray the baking sheet generously with the canola oil spray. Stick the slices of potatoes on the sheet (make sure they are not overlapping) and spray them generously with the canola oil as well. Bake for about 10 or 15 minutes and flip them over. Bake for about another 10 minutes or until both sides are starting to turn a yummy golden color. Pull the potatoes out of the oven. Add a bit of salt and pepper to each slice, then top with cheddar cheese and bacon bits. Put back in the oven for about 5 minutes or until the cheese has melted. Delicious!
