"Similar to Baked Potato Skins but you use the whole potato"
Potato Rounds (as seen on "Taste Buds"
2 russet potatoes
Salt, to taste (I used season salt in place of the salt, pepper, and paprika)
Black pepper, to taste
Paprika, to taste
1/3 cup Colby-jack cheese
5 slices of bacon, cooked and diced
Green onions for garnish, if desired
Sour cream, if desired
Preheat oven to 375.
1.Clean and scrub potatoes well. Slice the potatoes into 1/4" thick slices( Be sure to stay on the thicker side or they'll end up too crispy). Place potatoes on lightly buttered baking sheet and season each side with salt, black pepper, and paprika. Cook for 30 minutes. Flip potatoes over and cook for an additional 15 minutes.
2. 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 10 minutes. Serve with green onions and sour cream, if desired.
