Irish Nachos Anyone??

All I can say is...YUM!

All I can say is…YUM!

When my parents were visiting last Spring, we took them to a local joint.  It was a first for all of us, in more ways than one.  I mean, the idea is so simple and soooooo absolutely delicious that we were all impressed.  IRISH NACHOS, who knew?!?  This is the Irish’s spin (and I can say that ’cause I’m like 50% Irish) on the traditional Latin nachos.  You are your family could be enjoying each delicious bite in no time!  Now, I should confess that I didn’t have chipped corn beef handy for this particular batch, so I opted for bacon instead…both cured meats, let’s move on…

I started by slicing about 6-8 medium size potatoes about 1/8″ thick (man, I really need to invest in one of those handy slicers)!  I quickly rinsed them with some cold water and patted them dry.

I then drizzled them with about 1/4 cup olive oil, salt and pepper (to taste)

With the oven already preheated to 450 degrees, I spread the potatoes out evenly on 2 cookie sheets lined with parchment paper

After baking for about 25 minutes (be sure to do a taste test to make sure they are cooked through), I transferred potatoes to a large serving tray and topped with my desired amount of cheese.  I then put the tray back in the oven to melt the cheese (be sure tray is oven-safe, if not, keep potatoes on cookie sheets)!

Lastly, I finished it off with green onions, bacon and two big dollops of sour cream!

Enjoy!!!
