Servings 4 servings


  • 2 large potatoes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 12 slices cheddar cheese
  • 2 pieces bacon cut into small pieces
  • 2 jalapenos diced
  • sour cream optional
  • chives optional


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Slice large potatoes into half inch thick slices. Add to a large mixing bowl and toss in olive oil, salt and pepper.
  • Transfer to a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Arrange slices so they don't overlap. Bake for 30 minutes, flipping halfway.
  • While potatoes are baking, fry bacon in a medium skillet. Set aside. Fry diced jalapeno in the bacon grease (add olive oil if needed) until slightly browned. Dice bacon into small pieces once cooked.
  • Once potato slices are done baking, add bacon, jalapeno and cheddar cheese and put back into the oven for several minutes (until cheese is melted). Every piece should get a 1/4 slice of cheddar.
  • Top with sour cream and chives. Serve and enjoy!
