These Loaded Potato Wedges are the perfect game day or party appetizer. They are loaded with bacon, cheese, and topped with sour cream.These Loaded Potato Wedges are the perfect appetizer for all your upcoming football game and tail gate parties! We made these for several get togethers this summer and they were completely devoured! This is basically our recipe for regular potato wedges with a serious upgrade in the flavor department.
Be sure to get some good cheese, we love Tillamook- it just melts and tastes so much better than anything else we have tried. And it is definitely worth the extra work to buy a brick and shred it yourself. The pre shredded cheese just doesn’t have the same strong flavor- have you noticed that? Also, if you can, put the time in to cooking a crumbling your own bacon. Again, this has such a better flavored than the pre packaged crumbled bags.
We like to drizzle on the sour cream so you can just grab and eat these little babies. I actually like to spoon some into a sandwich bag, cut a small hole in one corner, and pipe it out like frosting so it looks pretty. You can also serve the sour cream on the side for dipping, and I know some of you out there prefer to dip these in ranch instead. 🙂
Did you notice the adorable chevron tray I served my potato wedges on? That is from our friends at Pick Your Plum! Their paper products are so cute!!
Loaded Potato Wedges
- Scrub potatoes well, slice into wedges and place in a large plastic bag. Add a little oil and toss to coat then transfer to a foil-lined baking sheet with the skin side down. Sprinkle potatoes generously with seasoning salt. Bake at 400 degrees for 30-35 minutes (or until cooked through and golden brown). Do not stir while cooking.
- Sprinkle on cheese and crumbled bacon and bake for 2 more minutes, just long enough for the cheese to melt.
- Drizzle sour cream over the top and sprinkle with chives or italian seasoning.
