I took the idea of a good old fashioned loaded baked potato and turned it on it's head, creating a beautiful "stack" of deliciousness. Wish me luck!
Loaded Potato Stacks Recipe
2-3 large red potatoes
4 slices bacon – cooked and crumbled
¼ C green onion – diced
2 T olive oil
8 oz cream cheese – softened
¼ C sour cream
¼ C shredded cheddar – chopped small
3 T Dijon mustard
salt and pepper
- Wash potatoes and remove any eyes and blemishes. Cut off the ends of each potato. Slice the rest of the potatoes into 1/2” thick slices, you will need 12 slices total.
- In a bowl, toss the 12 potato slices with the olive oil, salt and pepper, coating well. Place the prepared potatoes on a cookie sheet and bake at 350° for 30 minutes, turning over once during cooking time.
- In a standing mixer whip together the cream cheese, sour cream, Dijon mustard and chopped cheddar until smooth and creamy. Place cheese mixture into a piping bag.
- To assemble the potato stacks, start with one potato slice topped with 2 T of the cream cheese mixture. Add another potato slice and top with 2 T of the cream cheese mixture. Add the last potato slice and top with 1 T cream cheese mixture. Garnish with the crumbled bacon and green onions. Repeat for all 4 servings. Serve immediately.
Voila! A gorgeous side dish that is scrumptious and surprisingly easy! Bring a little fancy to a classic side dish. Enjoy!
