Veggie loaded potato rounds with melted cheese. Perfect for cookouts and football parties. Made with fresh vegetables like broccoli and bell peppers.
I love going to parties where the host has gone out of their way to include a vegetarian menu item. Those are my favorite types of hosts.
Last year, I came across a host who had about ten items on the table for vegetarians and vegans. I told her that hers was, hands down, the best BBQ party I have been too.
Believe me, it is not hard to please a vegetarian because we will eat everything that is not made from an animal.
See how simple we make it to please us?
Today’s recipe is all about pleasing the vegetarians and the meat lovers alike.

These potato rounds are loaded with all kinds of vegetables because it is more fun this way.
Corn is my favorite part of this recipe. I love how delicious it tastes on potato rounds
If you are feeling more adventurous, top them with a really nice hot sauce or sriracha.
The potato rounds work great as finger foods or even appetizers. It is also a fun way to get children to eat their veggies. I don’t know of any kid who loves to eat an eggplant, but, they devour this potato rounds.
I made a huge batch of these potato rounds but only managed to photograph a few of them. Most of them were gobbled up by me and friends who happened to have invited themselves over.
That is what I get for telling people my recipe ideas before hand.
