They are the best appetizer to snack on during happy hour, pregame for the super bowl, and as a delicious side dish to add to any dinner table.

-2 tablespoons salted butter (melted)
-1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
-1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
-1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
-Sharp cheddar cheese (shredded)
-1 Fresno pepper (optional, I love the added spice so will usually make 1/2 spicy)
-Sea salt (optional)
*This recipe will yield around 15-17 potato skin bites. If you are serving more people use 2 potatoes.
-Preheat oven to 400 F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
-Wash and dry the potato.
-Slice the potato so you have between 15-18 slices. Try and keep them thin. (not paper thin) Place the sliced potatoes on the baking sheet.
-Melt the butter in the microwave for 30 seconds and then stir in the ground pepper, red pepper flakes, and garlic powder.
-Brush the melted butter on the top of the sliced potatoes and then flip them and repeat this step.
-Bake for 20 minutes and then take out and quickly flip the potatoes.
-Pan fry the bacon until crispy and then chop up into small pieces.
-Bake for another 20 minutes and then take out and add the sharp cheddar on top of each potato and a light sprinkle of sea salt.
-Return to the oven for 2 more minutes.
-Take out and sprinkle the chopped bacon on.
-Then add a dollop of sour cream followed by a sprinkle of chopped chives.
