Super (Bowl) Snacker

The Super Bowl is a few weeks away and I have already been dreaming of a menu.  Although my traditional super bowl food is chili and chips, I wanted to veer toward dairy this year!
The inspiration came from the scarce amount of food in my house.  Don't pity me...It's for a good reason!  I am moving soon, and as most people do when moving, I have tried using up the food I currently have in my house.   I had sweet potatoes and cheese lying around.  I added some spices and chili powder (to keep with the chili theme) and made the Super Loaded Sweet Potato!  I know you will enjoy these as much as I did!


Super Loaded Sweet Potato
2 Sweet Potatoes, sliced 1/4 inch
1tsp. Chili Powder
1 tsp. Garlic Powder
Salt and Pepper, to taste
4 TBS. Olive Oil
Cheese, Shredded, Any Kind
Sour Cream
Chives

Preheat oven to 350.  Lay foil down on a sheet pan.  Mix the potatoes, oil and spices in a bowl and place the potatoes on the sheet tray.  Place the potatoes in the oven for 10 minutes.  Flip the potatoes and cook for another 10 minutes on the other side.   Add cheese to each potato and put in the oven for another 2-3 minutes until melted.  Add a dollop of sour cream and garnish with chives and freshly ground black pepper.

  1. Really, few things are more delicious than potato and sour cream. This one is a must for me and I have a feeling I will try it with white potatoes and sweets and all sorts of seasonings. The idea is such a good one and so easy too. I frequently do dairy for a crowd. I find it easier and more versatile.
