The holidays may be over but the greatest snack food day of the year is coming up…and oh yeah, they play some football that day too. But really, it’s about the food.
Every year I look for interesting things to make and this year I’m making Loaded Smashed Potatoes! Crispy and smothered in cheese, bacon, and sour cream, these are the perfect game day bite.
To make them:
Get a bag of small potatoes (you can use red but I much prefer the flavor of the golden).
Boil potatoes whole for about 15 minutes or until fork tender.
Drain potatoes and place onto a greased (with olive oil) baking sheet.
Smash the potatoes down using either a potato masher or just the bottom of a cup.
Brush generously with olive oil.
Sprinkle generously with sea salt.
Bake at 450ºF for 20 minutes until good and crispy.
Top each one with about a tablespoon of cheese.
Place the pan under the broiler until the cheese starts to bubble.
Top with sour cream, bacon, and green onions (or chives).
These are so good, your guests will be begging for more!
