Loaded Roasted Potatoes

These Loaded Roasted Potatoes are my favorite grilling side dish of the summer! They pair perfectly with just about any main course you might throw on the grill - chicken, fish, steak, burgers, sausages. Loaded Roasted Potatoes can also be made in an oven, but as long as the weather is hot, avoid heating up the kitchen and take these outside! 

These roasted potatoes are loaded with flavor thanks to seasoning salt, smokehouse-style almonds, sharp cheddar cheese, and fresh chives. Finished with creamy, cool sour cream, these are the ultimate loaded potatoes. In fact, my brother dubbed them the best potatoes he’s ever had!

Smokehouse-style almonds are my plant-based alternative to bacon bits. I love to chop them up for topping baked potatoes, creamy chowders, salads - anywhere you would put crispy, crumbled bacon. They have that smoky, salty flavor and perfect crunch, and make a great plant-based substitute!

Make these Loaded Roasted Potatoes for your next barbecue or grilled dinner, and watch how fast they disappear!

I don't normally comment on recipes but this has got to be the best thing I've ever made. It came together pretty easy and made five meals - perfect for meal prep for the week. I already can't wait to make it again.
