Potato Slabs

These potato slabs is another recipe that I made for the super bowl. It was the one new recipe I made that day. I found this recipe at Amber’s Kitchen. I thought this sounded like an easier way to have something like potato skins and you use the whole potato.

They were exactly what I expected. The only thing is, make sure you slice them in the thicker side. Some of my potato slices ended up a little thinner than the 1/4 inch and they ended up too crunchy. I also used season salt in place of the salt, black pepper, and paprika. I am definitely keeping this recipe.

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 375. Clean and scrub potatoes well. Slice the potatoes into 1/4" thick slices Be sure to error on the thicker side or they'll end up too crispy).

  • 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 4-8 minutes. Serve with green onions and sour cream, if desired.

  3. This looks freaking amazing! I love potato skins but it’s just too much work for too little reward (I’m not one that enjoys cooking but I love eating). I’m definitely trying this recipe ASAP!

  5. These look fantastic. I do make potato skins but I always have to find a use for the insides of the potatoes. This looks like a great alternative.

  7. Ooh that is such a pretty picture. I made potato skins for the Super Bowl but I always leave more “meat” on them than most recipes call for; they taste more healthy that way and it makes me feel like I’m not wasting as much. But I will try it this way next time! Good luck tomorrow 🙂
