    Today Is National Potato Chip Day! Grab a bag of store bought Bacon Potato Chips or celebrate with these Homemade Cheddar Bacon Potato "Chips"!!

    Ingredients:

    2 large potatoes, scrubbed and skins left on
    Non-stick spray
    Olive Oil
    Salt
    Pepper
    Dried dill weed
    Paprika
    1 - 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
    Chopped cooked bacon (or real bacon bits)
    2 - 3 green onions, sliced thinly

    Directions:

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

    Line a large baking sheet with foil, then spray foil with non-stick spray.

    Using a mandolin, slice potatoes into super thin rounds. If you don't have a mandolin, just slice potatoes as thin as you can get them.

    Arrange potatoes slices in a single layer on the baking sheet. Using two large potatoes yielded enough potato "rounds" to cover my large baking sheet.

    Sprinkle potatoes with salt, pepper, dill weed and paprika. (You're looking for just a light dusting of each on each round.)

    Drizzle on a light coating of olive oil.

    Kind of rub the oil across each potato to coat evenly.

    Bake for 20 - 25 minutes in the oven until potatoes are starting to crisp up and just brown. You're looking for the bottoms to be pretty crispy.

    Remove from oven and arrange them kind of overlapping like you would if you were making nachos.

    Sprinkle cheese on each round. Top with bacon.

    Return to oven and bake just until cheese is melted and bacon is warmed through (about 5 minutes).

    Remove from oven and top with sliced scallions. Serve with sour cream or ranch dressing.
