I make Roasted Mini Loaded Potatoes quite a bit, they are easy, and a fun way to change up dinner, or an easy appetizer.. The kids love them, and there is always something for everyone. The possibilities are really endless, but I'm sharing our top 5 favorites today. Since great tasting meals start with cheese fresh off the block cheese.

5 Loaded Mini Potato Recipes- Cheesy Buffalo Ranch
The first recipe is Cheesy Buffalo Ranch. It's made with a roasted red potato, with a layer of ranch, buffalo pulled chicken, and covered with Sargento®  Shredded 4 Cheese Mexican. If you love Buffalo Chicken with Ranch these are guaranteed to be a hit! 
5 Loaded Mini Potato Recipes-Cheesy Bacon Chive Loaded Mini Potato
Then we made a more traditional Cheesy Bacon Chive Loaded Mini Potato with roasted potatoes, Sargento® Chef Blends® Shredded 6 Cheese Italian, bacon bits, and sliced chives or scallions. We even enjoy this as a simple side dish some nights. 
5 Loaded Mini Potato Recipes-Pulled Barbecued Chicken
Pulled Barbecued Chicken is another dinner time favorite. I use leftover chicken, my favorite barbecue sauce, and then cover it with Sargento® Chef Blends® Shredded 6 Cheese Italian.
5 Loaded Mini Potato Recipes- Chili Cheese
Chili Cheese Loaded Mini Potatoes are a favorite when we have leftover chili, the roasted small red potatoes are covered in our favorite chili, then covered with Sargento® Shredded 4 Cheese Mexican, and then topped with scallions or chives. 
5 Loaded Mini Potato Recipes - Cheesy Broccoli
Last but not least we have Cheesy Broccoli Loaded Mini Potatoes. These are a great way to sneak broccoli into the kids, they absolutely devoured them. They consist of roasted red potatoes, blanched broccoli, then covered in Sargento® Chef Blends® Shredded 6 Cheese Italian. The flavors incredible!

For each recipe you will need to slice 1 pound Small Red Potatoes in half. We then slice a little off the bottom of each potato to help them lay flat.
Toss with 1 tablespoon Olive Oil, and 1/2 teaspoon Salt, until well combined.

Place potatoes on a parchment lined baking sheet, and bake in a 400 degree oven for 45-60 minutes.

To make the Cheesy Buffalo Ranch Mini Potatoes you will spread a layer of your favorite Ranch on each potato.

Grab your favorite Sargento® Shredded Cheese- for this recipe I used the 4 Cheese Mexican. I like to keep both of these cheeses on hand to help with easy dinner time prep! I prefer Sargento® Shredded Cheese since it is always shredded from blocks of real, natural cheese, for a high quality product.

Cover toppings with your favorite cheese.

Return to oven for an additional 5 minutes or until hot, and cheese is melted.
