Recipe Reading : Optional

Traditionally Christmas Eve in the Raatjes house was spend together with lots of appetizers.  This past Christmas we were having a very low key Christmas Eve with Andy's folks and I tried to follow that tradition.  These spuds were part of it.
It wasn't until that night when I actually read the recipe - smart right?  Idiot.  Actually it turned out really well, just had to boil the potato slices for a little bit before loading them up and popping them in the oven.  Those potatoes were the hit of the evening.  I would make them again for a party or even as a side for dinner, even with the bacon on them!  Oh you are unaware of my disdain for bacon?  Ok disdain is putting it a bit harshly, bacon is fine in things if you can't taste it... Even better if it is not there.
Anyway!  Make these for dinner or a snack, load them up how ever you like them, even with bacon.
