It is time to save another favorite fried food of mine. Have you ever had those glorious fresh-cut, fried potato chips smothered with blue cheese dressing, bacon and chives? Oh my, I can remember the very first time I had them. It was in Charleston, SC and it definitely was love at first bite. The crisp potato chips with the salty bacon dripping with blue cheese dressing and the punch from the chives was so addicting. This was years ago, and they have become quite popular since. These days we rarely eat fried food, so I fondly remember them and dream of eating them again. It is time to stop the dreaming nonsense and make them healthier. The whole point of Food Done Light is to make food that you crave in a healthy way. It is not about deprivation, it is about finding a new way to enjoy food you love. Idaho® potatoes are naturally fat-free and cholesterol free. They are also loaded with potassium, Vitamin B6 and C, and a good source of fiber. They also have less sugar than a sweet potato so they are a great choice for a healthy makeover recipe.
This one was simple. Why did I torture myself and wait so long to make these delectable little smoky paprika potato kebabs with bacon and blue cheese. Instead of frying potato chips, I cubed the Idaho® potatoes and tossed them with some smoky, sweet paprika to add delicious flavor and roasted them. Then I made a skewer with a roasted, crispy potatoes, cooked turkey bacon and green onion. That took care of the fried potato chips, bacon crumbles and chives. Next all I needed was to whip up a low-fat blue cheese dressing, and I had all the flavors covered. This is a really simple recipe that will be perfect for the July 4th holiday. That is if the kebabs make it to the plate before your family of vultures gets to them. I was lucky some survived for the pictures. My family was gobbling them up as fast as I could make them.
