‘Tis the season of snacks.
Whether it’s something to bring to a holiday party, a yummy bite during Sunday’s big game, or even just a nibble to hold you over between meals, there is no denying the need for hearty snacks in the month of December.
Never fear, Tablespoon to the rescue!
Today’s snack is Spicy Bacon Oven Chips
a treat that is sure to satisfy any snacking situation. They have all the elements I look for in a perfect snack: Oozy cheese, salty bacon, and just the right kick of heat.
Slicing your potatoes uniformly is very important to this recipe. You need them to cook evenly!
Soak them in ice water for about an hour, just to reduce the starchiness. Then make sure to pat dry before baking.
Lay them out on a baking sheet and cook at very high heat, flipping once, until lightly browned and tender.
While they bake, make the sauce. Just toss everything into the food processor and be done with it!
On the same pan, just top these guys with cooked bacon, jalapeno, and cheese.
Toss back into the oven until melty and delicious.
I like to stack them up like potato nachos.
The creamy yet fiery dip is the perfect fit for the soft potato!
