20 Minute Potato Wedges are loaded with cheese, bacon & chives. These are the perfect game day snack. It’s an easy potato skins recipe you’ll love!!
Can I tell you something? One of my first jobs was at a restaurant & one of the perks was that we could order anything off the menu for our lunch break. It was awesome because I loved the food there. Sometimes I would get the chicken fingers & a big ol’ boat of ranch dressing. Oh man did they ever have the best chicken fingers. But my second favorite choice was the potato skins. I can never get enough of those & I would order them all the time. To this day I always gravitate to game day snacks when we eat out. I love appetizers & I certainly have to have them when it’s football season. So of course for bacon month I just had to make some skins & load them up with bacon.

The thing that always kept me from making potato wedges in the past is how long they took to make & how labor intensive they usually are. So since I like to really break things down & simplify things, I had to do that with these wedges. If I can find a way to make anything easier then I’m all for it.
I’m obsessed with these. Now that I have them down to just 20 minutes of prep, these will definitely be happening every single weekend in this house. YUM-O!
