Loaded Potato Skillet

These potatoes may make you feel good because they do not come out of a chip bag but beware. The dish is made up of meat, potato and cheese and that sounds o.k. but take a closer look. The potatoes are covered with bacon and cheese and while that taste great they may not be the thing you want to eat every day. Any recipe that starts with the word "loaded" you may want to watch just a bit. Now dont let that prevent you from munching on these but keep in mind the old saying every thing in moderation. 

 large russet potatoes
1 cup shredded cheese
1/4 cup bacon bits (I bake bacon in the oven and then chop it)
Salt and Pepper
Olive oil
Chopped parsley (optional)

Using a mandoline or a very sharp knife, slice potatoes into thin chips. Pat slices dry with a paper towel.
In a large bowl toss potatoes with 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil. Lay out in a single layer on a cookie sheet (may need 2 cookie sheets).
Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 10-14 minutes. Checking on them close to 10 minutes, don\'t let them burn.
Remove from oven and place on a wire rack.
In two single serve cast-iron skillets, (or 1 large one), begin with one layer of baked potato chips. Sprinkle with cheese and bacon bits. Add another layer of chips. Sprinkle with cheese and bacon bits.
Add another layer of chips and sprinkle with the last layer of cheese and bacon bits. Place the cast-iron skillets into the 425F oven for about 5-6 minutes or until the cheese melts. Remove from oven. Careful, skillets will be very, very hot.
Sprinkle with chopped parsley.
