Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds russet potatoes wash with a vegetable brush, sliced 1/8 inch thick
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar, Colby, mozzarella)
  • 1 package bacon cooked and cut up into pieces
  • 2 scallions thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon cilantro
  • For dip:
  • 4 ounces sour cream
  • 1 tomato diced
  • 1/2 cup jalapeño peppers sliced (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450℉
  • Toss potatoes with olive oil. Bake potato slices on a baking sheet for about 15 minutes, turn over and bake another 15 - 20 minutes until golden and slightly crisp.
  • Next, in a single layer overlap the potatoes in a cast-iron skillet that can be baked in the oven. Season potatoes with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with cheese and bacon. Bake for 5 minutes to melt cheese. Then sprinkle with scallions and cilantro.
  • For dip: In a separate dish, stir diced tomatoes into the sour cream. Serve on the side as a dip.

Notes

  • If you don't have an oven-safe cast-iron skillet, you can use another oven safe dish like a pie plate or casserole dish.
  • You can go with a Mexican pre-grated cheese, but I recommend aged cheese that you grate yourself. The pre-grated type contains preservatives meant to keep it from clumping. It doesn’t melt quite as well.
