Zelda loves bacon and if she had it her way, she would eat it at every meal. As I was making our St. Patrick’s Day Irish Potato Bites I noticed she had sneakily taken the entire bowl of crumbled bacon to eat on the couch while she watched Micky Mouse Clubhouse. This year, I wanted to make something savory for St. Patrick’s Day (but don’t worry, something sweet is coming your way next week) so I chose to use three ingredients Ireland prides themselves on — butter, potatoes and cheddar. It wouldn’t be authentic without Kerrygold and I enlisted Oriental Trading to help with our décor. How are you celebrating with your babes this year?

This year, I wanted to make something savory for St. Patrick’s Day so I chose to use three ingredients Ireland prides themselves on — butter, potatoes and cheddar.

ingredients
  • Kerrygold Irish Butter
  • Kerrygold Irish Cheddar
  • 10-12 Red Potatoes
  • 1 Green Pepper
  • 3-4 Pieces of Bacon
  • 1/4 Cup Sour Cream
  • 2 Tablespoons Green Onion, Chopped
  • Salt & Pepper
instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Slice the potatoes (crosswise) 3/4 of the way, along the entire potato.
  3. Using a mandoline, thinly slice small pieces of the green pepper and insert into every other cut of the potato (if it becomes too full you don't need to fill every space).
  4. Next, thinly slice the cheddar into small pieces and place into the remaining spaces.
  5. Spread butter over the top and bake for 7-10 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
  6. While the potatoes are baking, cook the bacon and crumble. Slice the green onion.
  7. Remove the potatoes from the oven, top with sea salt, 1/2 teaspoon sour cream, bacon bits and green onion.
  8. Serve to your family!
