BLT Potato Snacks

BLT Potato Snacks

Introduction

A lighter take on a pub favorite! For extra veggies, top with chopped tomatoes. A lighter take on a pub favorite! For extra veggies, top with chopped tomatoes.
Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 pound fingerling potatoes, sliced 1/4 inch thick
    4 strips reduced-sodium turkey bacon, cooked and crumbled
    1/4 cup reduced-fat sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
    4 green onions, whites and greens chopped (or 1/4 cup chopped red onion)
    2 tablespoons fat-free Greek yogurt

Tips

You can also just cut the potatoes in half if you prefer.

Use reduced-fat sour cream instead of Greek yogurt.

Use sweet potatoes instead of white potatoes.


Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Place the potato slices between two silicone baking mats or pieces of parchment paper on a sheet pan. (This will help them get crispy.)

Place the bacon on a second sheet pan.

Bake the potatoes for 15 minutes. Remove the top sheet of parchment and bake another 5 minutes, until potatoes are golden brown.

Increase the oven temperature to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Coat a baking dish with nonstick pan spray. (I used a 9-inch round pan.) Spread the cooked potatoes in a single layer on the pan. Sprinkle on the bacon and cheese. Bake until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes. Remove from the oven, sprinkle on the green onions, and serve the yogurt on the side or on top of each portion.

Serves 4.

    Why cant Chef Meg use a photo of the actual dish? The photo shows potato skins with bacon & green onion, but the recipe says to slice the potatoes into slices. And there are no tomatoes or tom sauce in the picture -- VERY MISLEADING like so many of Chef Meg's recipe pictures. - 11/16/12

    You could also use bacon bits (the real kind) - Hormel makes them. Microwave the bits between paper towels to remove some of the fat, then sprinkle on top of the potatoes. I use these in place of bacon for a lot of recipes, even omelets or scrambled eggs. - 5/21/11

    For an individual serving, I use french fries. Bake them up. Then sprinkle with the cheese and bacon and go from there.
    Basically same taste, less work and easier for me to accurately count a serving and calories. - 10/30/11

    don't know if I'd call it 'nachos'....wheres the spicy jalapenos or the beans! even 'irish nachos' need a hint of their fiesta heritage....the recipe sounds good but call it what it is, 'a healthy spin on potato skins' or 'bubble and squeak's sassy cousin'. - 2/1/11

    I did a lot of substituting: soy bacon instead of turkey bacon, low fat Mexican cheese, cherry tomatoes, cilantro, green onion tops, big dollop of fat free sour cream, and i used sweet potatoes. - 9/20/11

    The photo looks okay to me....and nowhere is there a mention of nachos. Am I missing something? I agree that I would use sour cream, not greek yogurt. - 2/21/13

    I agree with other posters that you should adjust this recipe to your taste. I did not care for the canned diced tomato and greek yogurt "sauce". Some small dollops of fat-free or light sour cream would fit the nacho theme better. Also subsitutied low-fat Mexican cheese for the mozzarrella. - 9/5/11

    I changed the recipe to use fat free shredded cheddar cheese and used fresh tomatoes in the sauce with a little cilantro and lime juice. Topped with romain lettuce, green onions, jalapenos and chopped roma tomatoes. Yummy!!! - 7/27/11

    Sounds like something I would have made in the past, but I agree with some of the others about the photo. It's a major distraction from the recipe. It doesn't make it look appetizing. Sorry. - 2/1/11
