Irish Nachos: Crisp potato rounds topped with crispy bacon and gooey cheese. Your new favorite appetizer or side dish: so addicting!

Irish Nachos

 


I can never get enough nachos. Once I start, that plate is doomed! I think what makes them so appealing to me is the combination of flavors/textures.

 

These Irish Nachos (aka nachos made with potatoes are something else entirely). Crispy potatoes, gooey cheese, crunchy bacon, and creamy sour cream. I’m in heaven!

 

These Irish nachos make a great appetizer/side dish IF you can share. Personally in our house we each grab some on a plate.

I went with traditional loaded baked potato toppings like bacon, cheese, and green onion. However, feel free to use whatever toppings you/your family prefers.

Irish Nachos Shopping tips:

  1. I like making my bacon in the microwave so I don’t have to mess around with frying it. Simply cover with a paper towel and cook for 3-4 minutes or until crisp.
