Mmmm Mmmm Monday: Western Potato Rounds

I made this appetizer for a get-together with our friends on New Year's Eve, and they got devoured within minutes! Because it's a Pampered Chef recipe, you know that it's tasy and super easy!

2 large unpeeled baking potatoes (about 1.25 lbs)
Vegetable Oil
1 cup (4 oz) shredded Co-Jack cheese
6 bacon slices, crisply cooked, drained and crumbled (I used bacon bits!)
1/3 cup green onion slices
1/4 cup bbq sauce

Preheat oven to 450*. Cut potatoes inot 1/4 inch thick slices (I used a wavy crinkle cutter for a scalloped effect). Generously spray both sides of potato slices with oil. Place on baking stone (or baking sheet if you don't have a stone). Bake 20 minutes or until lightly browned; remove from oven. Combine cheese, bacon and green onion in a bowl. Using a pastry brush, generously brush potato slices with bbq sauce; sprinkle with cheese mixture. Put back into oven for 3-5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Dip in or top with sour cream, ranch, or bleu cheese dressing and enjoy!

PS- these would make a GREAT Super Bowl snack!
