Who wouldn’t love a combo of potatoes, cheesy goodness and bacon? These were a huge hit in our house. Potato & Bacon BBQ Cups have a gooey combo of cream cheese, BBQ sauce and shredded cheddar cheese mixed into the potatoes for a zesty, crispy appetizer. You’ll love dipping them in BBQ sauce or sour cream for added flavor. And Simply Potatoes® Shredded Hashbrowns make them so incredibly easy to make!
Potato & Bacon BBQ Cups
Simply Potato Shredded Hash Browns (1 bag)
6 oz Cream Cheese
1 package of Bacon
2 cups shredded Cheddar Cheese
1/4 cup BBQ Sauce
Pre heat oven to 355′. Using kitchen sheers cut the bacon into thirds, using the sheers makes it easy to cut the whole package at the same time. You’ll have a bunch of small strips. Make a criss cross with the bacon in each spot of a muffin tin. Place in oven while you mix up the other ingredients.
In a medium bowl combine the cream cheese and BBQ sauce. Mix well until creamed. Spoon in the shredded potatoes and cheddar, mix gently. Place a heaping spoonful of the potato mixture into each spot of the muffin tin. There will be some bacon left, cut it into small pieces and place them on top of each cup and sprinkle a bit of cheddar on top as well.
Place in the oven and let cook for 40-45 minutes. Remove from the muffin tin immediately and let sit for a few minutes. Serve with a little BBQ sauce and/or sour cream.
Simply Potatoes make it so easy to create this recipe. There’s no washing, pealing or shredding the potatoes. They don’t come frozen, but fresh instead! Right when you open the bag, the potatoes are ready to go! It only takes a few minutes to cook as opposed to whole potatoes. You can find Simply Potatoes in the fresh section of the super market, near the eggs and butter. The Potato & Bacon BBQ Cups can be stored in the fridge, reheated and still taste great.
