Whether you're pairing these with a classic steak dinner or dishing it up as an appetizer before, these are guaranteed to be loved by all of your dinner guests!


  • 3 russet potatoes, scrubbed clean
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • salt/pepper, to taste
  • 2.5 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 6 slices bacon, uncooked
  • 1 tbsp italian seasoning
  • 2 green onions, diced


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. 
  2. Cut the potatoes into 3/4 inch slices. Brush the potatoes lightly coating them with oil. Flip and repeat. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Bake the slices on a baking sheet in the oven for 25 minutes.
  4. As the potatoes bake, cook the bacon over low heat. Set them aside and pat dry to remove the excess fat. Allow the bacon to cool and then crumble it. 
  5. Remove the potato slices from the oven and lightly brush with bacon drippings from the pan. Flip and repeat. Bake for 10 more minutes. Meanwhile, crumble the bacon.
  6. Decrease the heat to 350 degrees. Top the potatoes with grated cheese and crumbled bacon. Place back in the oven until the cheese is melted, about 5 minutes.
  7. Remove the slices from the oven. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning, then top with green onions. Serve with sour cream and enjoy!
