Tonight my son said, “I love that you are a blogger because you make better food than other moms!”.  It cracked me up!  He loved these loaded potato wedges and my kids are normally the deciding factor if I share something on here or not.  

These are great for a party or even a quick dinner.  I made these several times during football season so my boys could have a heavy snack before they headed off to practice.

Yummy Loaded Potato Wedges Recipe

I know you’ve all heard of a loaded baked potato. This are very similar, but you can eat with your hands. Even though these are a perfect family dinner during the school year, you can make them other times too.  I plan on making them for New Year’s Eve.  They are the perfect finger food for people to grab and go.

Ingredients for Delicious Potato Wedges with Cheese and Bacon

Potatoes– I like to leave the peel on when I make these, but if you don’t like the skin you can take it off.

Olive oil

Colby jack cheese– I like colby jack cheese, but you can use what you have or normally buy. Pepper jack would give these a spicy flavor and sharp cheddar cheese would be great.

Bacon– Make sure to cook it crispy. The easiest way I found to do this is using an air fryer. If you haven’t gotten one yet, don’t wait any longer. This is the one I have.

Green onions

Sour cream– You can susbitite plain greek yogurt to save yourself a few calories.

Salt and black pepper to taste
