Southwestern Potatoes

These were amazingly delicious! And so easy! We actually had them 3 times this week, we liked them so much LOL

They're definately being added to the "side dish" rotation, since I always have the ingredients on hand.

Southwestern Potatoes
package bacon bits (real ones not "bacon flavored") -- I omitted these
2 unpeeled large potatoes, scrubbed
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup barbeque sauce (I used Sweet Baby Ray's)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (I used sharp cheddar)
1/2 cup sour cream (optional, for dipping) -- I omitted

- Line 2 large baking sheets with foil, and spray lightly with cooking spray (Melissa doesn't reccommend this, but the first time my potatoes stuck to the foil. the cooking spray helped)
- Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Farenheit
- Cut potatoes into 1/4" slices
- Toss the potatoes, olive oil, garlic salt, and pepper in a large ziplock bag to coat the potatoes
- Arrange potatoes in a single layer on the baking sheets and bake until slightly browned (about 15-20 minutes)
- Brush with barbeque sauce, then top with the shredded cheddar cheese (and bacon bits if you use them)
- Bake until the cheese melts, about 3-5 minutes more
- Top or dip with sour cream if desired
