The other day I saw a bag of Yukon gold potatoes sitting on the counter at my parents house. Since potatoes weren't on that night's dinner menu, I knew I could use them to make a delicious and easy appetizer. Inspired by a crisp potato recipe from the latest Everyday Food magazine, I decided to make these nachos with blue cheese, green onions, and grape tomatoes.
The final, bite-sized result was the perfect amuse bouche — warm, crunchy, salty — pure scrumptiousness. Some of my guests dislike blue cheese, so I made a fresh mozzarella version to suit their picky tastebuds. The recipe is highly adaptable, you can top the potato chip with any cheese and vegetable combination, so get it now and read more.
