Irish Nachos

With the passing of St Patrick's Day over the weekend I thought I'd share a recipe.  A restaurant in town makes something similar to these and we really like them. 

Irish Nachos

4-5 pounds of washed potatoes, sliced into 8 wedges each.
2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 lb sliced corned beef from the deli
sour cream
chopped green onions

Preheat the oven to 400* and soak the potato wedges in a mild salt water for a bit.  When the oven is hot, drain them, blot them dry with a towel and toss them in oil.  Spread them across a greased cookie sheet and bake them for 45 minutes.

While they are baking, chop up the corned beef into small chunks.  Heat up the sauerkraut in a pan on the stove until hot.  (no need to cook it, just heat it)

After the wedges are done, pull out the pan and sprinkle cheese and corned beef over the top generously.  Put the pan back in the oven until the cheese is melted and bubbly. 

Top the potatoes with sauerkraut and eat!  (We actually top ours with sour cream and green onions too)  I'm not a huge fan of corned beef and cabbage.. but this I can eat!
