Loaded Potato Slices are hands-down one of the BEST appetizer or side dish recipes that literally everyone loves! Just like a regular loaded potato, the potato slices are covered in melted cheese, bacon, chives, or green onion. You can eat them like french fries with your hands and dip them into sour cream. If you like ranch with your bacon and potatoes, go for it!

Everyone, including the pickiest eater, absolutely loves these potatoes. Who doesn’t love melted cheddar cheese and crispy, crumbled bacon? They’re so easy to make. Serve them as an appetizer for a party or as a side dish. They’re excellent for Super Bowl Sunday too!

After the butter, season the potatoes with salt and pepper. If you prefer extra seasoning, you can also add Italian seasonings. However, I find salt and pepper to be just perfect! Bake the potato slices for 30 minutes.

Finally, sprinkle each potato slice with shredded cheese, cooked bacon crumbles, and fine-cut chives or green onion. Return the loaded potato slices to the oven for an additional 5 minutes to allow the cheese to melt. Serve immediately with sour cream and/or ranch dressing for dipping.


  • Refrigerator Store in the fridge in an airtight container for 3-4 days. Reheat in a 350°F oven for 6 minutes or until warmed through.
  • Freezer Baked potato slices freeze well! However, leave out the green onions. To reheat, bake at 325° for 8-10 minutes.
