A Delicious Way to Enjoy Potatoes.

These Loaded Potato Crisps are such a great way to serve potatoes, either as a side dish to dinner or as an appetizer. They’re crunchy like french fries, but with the loaded goodness of a baked potato. And did I mention, so cheesy?! How can you go wrong with that combo? Make a batch then set out bowls of toppings like sour cream, chopped onions, and bacon bits, then let everyone dress up their own!

Double the batch!

Trust me, these bites don’t last long so you might want to consider doubling the recipe! They’re really that good!

Make them an appetizer.

You can also serve these potato crisps as an appetizer! Same idea…make a big batch, then let your guest add their own favourite toppings. Interactive appetizers are always a bit hit!

Loaded Potato Crisps Recipe Tips:

  • POTATOES: Use basically 1 potato per person. I like to use red potatoes because the texture of them is more moist and not as powdery as other potatoes can be.
  • CHEESE: You can use any type of cheese: cheddar cheese, marble, Monterey Jack…
  • BAKING NOTE: When baking the potato crisps, you will need to watch them. It may take more time for them to become golden brown. We like ours quite golden brown and crunchy, so I let ours go for about 45 minutes.
  • TOPPINGS: Offer sour cream and sliced green onion. You can add crumbled bacon to the finished crisps too! Yum!

  • Author: Jo-Anna Rooney
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 55 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes
  • Yield: 46 servings 1x
  • Category: Side Dish
  • Method: Oven


  • 34 red potatoes, basically 1 potato per person
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • salt and fresh ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup grated cheese (cheddar or marble work great)
  • sour cream
  • 3 green onions (minced)


  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Prepare a baking sheet: line it with a piece of aluminum foil, then generously butter the foil with about 1 tbsp of cold butter. (Trust me, you need to butter it…that way the potatoes won’t stick and will come off easily.)
  3. Leave the potatoes unpeeled, then slice them into 1/2 inch pieces.
  4. Lay them out on the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Melt the remaining butter (about 2 tbsp), then generously brush the top of each potato slice with the butter.
  6. Bake for 25 – 35 minutes, or until the bottom of the crisp is golden brown. See notes.
  7. Then flip them over and bake for 10 more minutes.
  8. After this time, remove the pan from the oven, then evenly sprinkle the grated cheese on to the tops of each potato crisp.
  9. Put them back in the oven and bake for about 5 more minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

Now it’s time to serve them!

  1. Add a dollop of sour cream and some green onions! Delish!

  1. Wow – what a great idea to slice up the potatoes and bake them this way instead of the whole potato. I can’t wait to try these out. I could eat potatoes every day of the week. Thanks for the good ideas. I really enjoy your site and all of your recipes.
