Heart shaped potato skins!

Now presenting another heart shaped treat from my kitchen! Also, I won’t be offended if you all think I have completely gone off the deep end!
My husband was surprised last night when he came home to find yet another heart shaped meal in January!
And I know I said ” healthy” Valentines day treats for my Valentines day food extravaganza. But I served these with a very colorful salad.
These actually turned out much nicer than I thought they would. 
I cut a potato into slices. ( Two of these slices were flat, and the two “end” slices were rounded on the bottom)  and used my heart shaped cookie cutter set to cut out hearts.   
I ALWAYS leave the skins on potatos. They are the part of the potato with all the vitimans!
I used two sizes of cookie cutters.  Just so I could use as much of the potato as possible.
Layed them out on a baking sheet. brushed with olive oil and salt.
Of course I also cooked the ” scraps”. I am not a waster.
They came out nice and crispy! Just how we like them in my house!
I added. Cheese and bacon bits to each potato.  And thats it!
The best part is? I made this super cute treat and used ingrediants I already had!
