Potato Bomb Mini’s

Potato Bomb Mini's

I love these Potato Bomb Mini’s!  If you’ve never had a Potato Bomb before, this is definitely a good place to start.  These are usually made from a full sized Russet Potato and they are great at barbecues.  But these little Mini’s can be served anywhere.  You can make as many as you want for an appetizer, snack or just stack them high on party platter and watch them disappear.  And because they are so simple and easy to make, Instead of listing the amounts of everything below, I’m just going to write what’s in it and you can decide how many you want to make.  Every tater gets cheese, bacon, a little salt or creole seasoning if you want some spice, as well as some olive oil to make it all stick.  Think you can handle that?  Then let’s get started.

Baked Potato and Margarita Salt!

Baked Potato

Yep, the secret to a great Baked Potato is Margarita Salt.  I know that everyone thinks they know how to make a Baked potato these days.  Just throw it in the oven and bake it for an hour, right?  Well, sure.  That is, if you’re looking for a basic flavorless potato, be my guest.  But if you want that crispy, salty potato skin, there’s a few simple steps you need to follow in order to make your Baked Potato rock!

Baked Potato

First, Scrub-scrub-scrub.  Clean all of your potatoes before you stab them with a fork.  Four to five punctures on two sides of each potato is perfect.  Then drizzle olive oil over the top of each one and rub the skin with your hands until the potato is fully coated.  The next step is just as easy.  Sprinkle Margarita Salt over the top and turn each one over and repeat.  This is a trade secret for those Salted Baked Potatoes we all love from our favorite steak houses.  Why Margarita salt?  Because its good!  It’s very light and fluffy, and doesn’t over whelm your pallet when you’re eating it.  If you don’t have Margarita Salt then just use Kosher.  Then bake at 350 degrees f. for an hour.  If you’re baking 4 or more potatoes, add 15 minutes for each additional potato.
