Disclaimer:  I do realize that these are not “Irish”.  However, many North American “Irish Pubs” serve up these awesome potato nachos.. which I’ve had and really love!  Regardless what you call them, potatoes with cheese and other toppings are delicious!!

  1. Slice potatoes 1/4″ thick and place in a bowl of cold water for 20 minutes. Drain very well and dry potatoes with paper towel.
  2. If baking preheat oven to 400 degrees. Toss potatoes with 1/4 cup olive oil. Place on a parchment lined pan and bake 30-35 minutes or until browned and crispy.
  3. If frying, preheat oil to 375 degrees. Place potatoes into hot oil for about 7 minutes per batch or until lightly browned. Drain on paper towels.
  1. Preheat oven to 475 degrees.
  2. In a bowl, combine cheese, corned beef (or bacon) and half of the green onions. Layer half of the potatoes in an oven proof skillet or dish (a large pie plate works well). Top with half of the cheese.
  3. Repeat layers. Bake 15-20 minutes or until cheese is melted through.
  4. Remove from oven and top with remaining green onions, tomato and jalapeno. Serve with guacamole and sour cream.

  1. Looks great and I’m going to give it a try tonight. Irish is for the “Irish potato” used in the dish. Not the nationality of the dish. Google Irish Potato and you’ll see. :-)

  2. These were very good. The one problem we had was it took 2 1/2 hours to make from start to finish. My husband is a seasoned chef and he still took 2 1/2 hours. maybe we can find a short cut.
