I really wanted to call these rounds of potatoes,¬†Chips. I know they aren’t chips-chips because the potatoes are not crunchy, but they look like chips. And if I ever had to tell you what my favorite potato chip flavor was, I would say Loaded Baked Potato Chips.

Ever think about that; what would be your favorite chip flavor? But, like, one that is not out there, yet. I would pick Roasted Red Pepper (Ajvar) and Loaded Baked Potato. Do these two flavors already exist in chip form? They might. I’m not a chips-person. I like popcorn and pretzels. However, I would totally become a chips-person if those two flavors made their way to mah belly.

So, Loaded Baked Potato Rounds it is.

I love these little nibbles. They often make their appearance around here, especially on those big game days; Super Bowl, World Cup, Real Housewives of Wherever Reunions, etc.

This is a delicious snack that comes together in all of 30 minutes. A bit of bacon, some cheese(s), salt and pepper, and sometimes I even throw in some green onions or garlic. 10 or 12 minutes in the oven, and we are game. Done. Ready to attack eat. I also like to serve them with a side of sour cream sometimes. But that’s only on those days when I look thinner. Or maybe I look thinner because of my yoga pants, but whatever.

    I love potatoes cooked in any way. Fried, boiled, steamed, baked, you name it, I’ll eat it!
    These look yum indeed. Cannot wait to make them. :-)

    I ‚ô• all things potato- and I live in my yoga pants. (Not a happy combination.)

    These potato “chip” rounds are irresistible! I love the fact that they’re so thin- serving as svelte little platforms for the bacon, cheese, and sour cream!

  3. says

    These look awesome. I love baked potatoes with all the fixings but they take so long. This looks like a perfect alternative. May have to test these out for our upcoming Super Bowl party

    Oh Kate, I love potato oven fry discs as I call them. I never load them but what a great idea for game day. These look delicious and I must admit when I am super lazy sometimes I eat 1/2 cookie tray of these as my main dinner.:)

    I have a friend whose wife insisted he buy a mesh glove if he was going to get–and use–a mandolin. I just use the finger guard that came with my Benriner and what doesn’t get sliced goes to the composting pigs, the worm bin, or the outdoor compost bin. [Ok that sounds wrong, like if I *don’t* slice my finger it goes to the guinea pigs. They are vegans. I meant the remaining vegetable that is too big to use but too small to slice.]

    Anyhoo, these look delicious and I bet my family would love them. Thanks!

      Kirsten, I want your farm! I don’t know if I could do all the work that comes with it…I remember going to the village with my Grandmother every summer and watching her do tons and tons of work for her precious animals. And crops. :)

    The used to have loaded bake potatoe chips. I think they were made by Ruffles. I have really been down a chip aisle in awhile.
