snack time: baked potato bites


My Team is beyond hungry when I pick them up from school everyday.  A few times last week, I packed food to have for them the second they got in the car which diverted their usual Hangry (so hungry, they’re angry) unpleasantness. The other day I saw a photo of these very delicious Baked Potato Bites on Peter’s FB page, Kalofagas, and had to make them for my gang.  Super simple to make, these went great with my Buttermilk Ranch Dressing.

no real recipe baked potato bitesSlice potatoes 1/4 thick, toss with evoo, place as a single layer on parchment, sprinkle with old bay seasoning, bake at  400 degrees for 20 min. While the potatoes are baking, chop & fry bacon, top baked potato bites with bacon & shredded cheddar, bake 2 minutes more, and serve with buttermilk ranch dressing. Adapted from, the best Greek chef in the world.

What are some of your favorite after-school snacks?

    They look like a great after school (or anytime) snack.

    I am so borrowing the term, “Hangry.” My crew totally suffers from this condition on a very regular basis. And, thanks for the recipe. Not only simple, but affordable. ~Sharon

    I love your word, “Hangry.” I am so going to use it, again and again! I’m thinking of some variations as well. Such as “Hiny,” so hungry they are whiny. Or, “Humpy,” so hungry they’re grumpy. I love making up words. As for the recipe, I love the simplicity. This is one of those recipes my 13-yr old can make. She would skip the ranch and dunk them in salsa… her favorite food group. :o) I like the versatility of this recipe. You could basically use whatever you have in the fridge to top these, and they would still taste good–various cheeses, meats, herbs, veggies. Thanks for the inspiration, and the time-saver recipe! ~Sharon

      Thanks Sharon! I love how you have good ideas to add variety to this. You got me thinking that even scrambled eggs and cheese would be good too for breakfast bites.

    Okay, so sorry for the redundancy. It is true I’ve been known to repeat myself, but this time it was not intentional. I posted once and it didn’t look like it took, so I posted again on a different computer. Nonetheless, the truth remains, the recipe is awesome! And, you’re awesome, too! Blessings, Sharon
