This coming Sunday is Superbowl Sunday, Superbowl XLIX.
XLIX — extra licks?
You’ll enjoy the extra licks off your fingers if you make some of these indulgent loaded potato chips for game time. Maybe you’re just looking for another way to eat your #stormchips . We are getting more snow in the Maritimes this weekend, after all. Warm crunchy potato chips loaded up with everything you like on a baked potato. Ten minutes and DONE.
I really enjoy Superbowl Sunday. I’m not a regular football watcher, but I do enjoy watching football when I take the time to watch. I also actually understand the game, so don’t go thinking that I watch just because I think the uniforms are pretty. It’s much more than that. I like the well choreographed touchdown celebrations too. And the Superbowl Half Time Show, most years.
These loaded potato chips are much less a recipe than a snack idea. I’m planting the idea in your head, and it’s your responsibility to take it and run with it. Maybe you’d rather make BBQ chicken potato chips, or buffalo chicken and blue cheese potato chips – see where you can go with this? Go crazy with your favourite flavour combinations.
I used crinkle cut kettle chips for the potato chips here. I recommend using a thicker cut potato chip, or something that will stand up to holding the toppings. I also bought pre-cooked and crumbled bacon, and shredded cheese to make my life easier. One can’t be wasting time frying bacon when there’s serious snacking to be done, am I right?
Enjoy those Superbowl parties this weekend, y’animals!
Go Seahawks! When that twelfth man shows up at your party, feed him well.
[Recipe] Loaded Potato Chips
cooked bacon, chopped
green onions, chopped
Preheat oven to 400F.
Spread out the potato chips on a large baking sheet. Line the baking sheet with parchment paper to make clean up easier.
Sprinkle cheese and bacon liberally over the potato chips.
Bake in the hot oven for 5-8 minutes, until the chips are warm, the cheese has melted, and everything’s nice and sizzly.
Sprinkle with chopped green onions and place a dollop or two of sour cream in the middle of the chips, for dipping.
