Loaded Potato Slabs

Looking for the perfect appetizer for your Super Bowl snacking? These little potato slabs are a serious crowd pleasing appetizer and also easy to eat, which gets major points in my book. If there’s one thing I can’t stand about appetizers and hors d’oeurves is that some of them have no practicality in eating. They need to be something you can easily eat with one hand while holding your cocktail in your other. One of the biggest offenders of these is the chicken satay, can there be anything more cumbersome to eat? So you’re at a cocktail party and are offered a chicken satay and you have to clumsily gnaw at the meat on a stick, and then when you’re finished you’re left with this big stick searching around for either a trash tray or just hold it in your napkin. No thanks.
