Easy to make tasty potato appetizer, snack, or side dish. Cheese and tomato topping on slices of potatoes. Adapted from potatogoodness.com. I used dried basil instead of fresh for the garnish; you could use one of the optional toppings posted here or create your own. I parboiled the small ends of the potatoes for home fries or you could keep them to add to soup.

I really liked this! I sliced the potatoes very thinly, and they ended up like crispy kettle chips. I also did not put the tomato topping on the potatoes until they were on the plate, as I just preferred serving it cool like regular bruschetta. I had to use shredded cheese instead of fresh mozzarella, and green onions instead of basil, but it worked well. Thanks for sharing.
