Smoky Paprika Potato and Bacon Kebabs with Blue Cheese Dip - Low Calorie, Low Fat Appetizer #SundaySupper #ad

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.

  1. Love everything about this appetizer and especially the dip.
  2. I love all of the flavors in this app! The blue cheese dip makes them over-the-top good!!
  3. I used the same flavor profile and you just can't beat the delicious combo of potatoes, blue cheese and bacon! Your kebabs look fantastic!
    • Christie Daruwalla says
      Hi Liz, There can be nothing better than potatoes, bacon and blue cheese! Yours are so pretty.
  4. YUM!! Bacon and blue cheese together is just heaven!
  5. What a great app! I love that you remade an old favorite and made it healthier!
  6. Perfect bite-sized treats. I love the blue cheese taste with these.
  7. I love the smoky paprika on your taters and I really love that you dip them in blue cheese!
  8. Love these crispy beauties and the bacon just just makes it too good :) Perfect party appetizer!
  9. What a fun and simple appetizer! The dip takes it OVER THE TOP!
  10. I'm so intrigued by using cottage cheese in your blue cheese sauce! I love that you lightened it up, which I usually see with yogurt (with varying degrees of success), but I don't think I've ever seen a recipe with cottage cheese! While it's not something I'm ever going to eat outright, I used it once in macaroni and cheese and it was outstanding. I'd try it here!

      Hi Julie, I don't like cottage cheese on it's own but I am finding it is a fantastic substitute for cream or mayonnaise. It really helps with texture in the sauce without giving it much "cottage cheese" flavor.
  11. These are so fun! What a great appetizer idea. That blue cheese dip is the icing on the cake!
  12. These would be entirely too dangerous in my hands - seriously this is like the best combination, I'd want to eat every last one!
    • Christie Daruwalla says
      I was very lucky I managed to wrestle some away from my family so I could photograph them.
  13. How brilliant and delicious! I just want to grab one and pop it in my mouth!
  14. Christie, I have so many of your recipes bookmarked to try and this is yet another to add to the list- Delicious!
  15. Bacon + blue cheese + potatoes = yes, please! You've put some of my favorite flavors together here ... I love it!
  16. A tasty blue cheese dip made on the lighter side sounds fabulous...especially paired with these perfect little potato bites!
  17. Invite me to YOUR party when you serve this! Wonderful recipe! (I laughed at your "family vultures" phrase...that so perfectly describes my family.)
  18. What a tasty appetizer and I love the dip!
