My Favorite Side: Baked Potato Bites!

25 Oct

I’ve been feeling so exhausted this week… so let’s talk about carbs!

This is a dish that I’ve been making for a few years now, and it’s easy to make in a frying pan, in the oven, over a campfire, or even on the grill. I made ours in the oven last night, because it’s the easiest, most hands-off way. I like to call these Baked Potato Bites, because it’s all the goodness of a baked potato but it’s much easier to eat (and each bite is equally covered in toppings… a must!)

Baked Potato Bites

What You’ll Need:

  • 3 small potatoes
  • 1/2 chopped onion
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • seasonings to taste: salt, pepper, oregano, chili powder
  • toppings – we use shredded cheese, bacon bits, and sour cream

What You’ll Do:

  • Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees
  • Cut up potatoes into bite size pieces and mix with chopped onions
  • Place the potatoes and onions on an ungreased cookie sheet. Cut up butter into liberal slices and place on top.
  • Add seasonings, and place inside the oven for 45 minutes (I usually mix everything up after 30 minutes)
  • Add your toppings, and enjoy!
