Ultimate Loaded Cheesy Bacon Potato Skins

AuthorKathleen GloverCategory, , DifficultyBeginner

Potato skins are my favorite comfort food. They are seriously my weakness, I used to buy those "Potato Skins" flavored potato chips from a certain chain restaurant. Comment below if you know which ones I'm talking about, they were so so good but sadly not nutritious at all. So you know I had to share my recipe for my all-time favorite potato skins. These guys are crispy, cheesy, salty, and so delicious.

The best part of this recipe is that you can modify it however you want. If you're a big fan of buffalo chicken, you could throw some chicken and buffalo sauce in there or if you want to go for a vegetarian option throwing in some broccoli and cheddar would make a portion of nice comfort food.

Prep Time30 minsCook Time15 minsTotal Time45 mins
Ingrediants:
 4 potatoes
 2 cups Cheddar cheese, grated
 8 bacon, chopped
 ½ cup Parmesan cheese, grated
 ½ cup sour cream
 3 tbsp oil
 ¼ tsp garlic powder
 ¼ tsp paprika
 2 green onions, sliced
 salt
 pepper
Directions:
1

In a skillet, cook bacon over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until bacon is crisp; drain on paper towels.

2

Meanwhile, gently scrub potatoes, but do not peel them. Pierce potatoes all over with fork to allow steam to escape. Place on a microwavable plate, arranging them in a spoke pattern with narrower ends facing the center. Microwave 12 to 14 minutes, turning once, until tender. Cover; let stand 5 minutes.

3

Preheat oven to 450° F. When potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut lengthwise in halves; carefully scoop out inside of potatoes, leaving ¼-inch shells.

4

In small bowl, add potato flesh and mix in oil, salt, garlic powder, paprika, cheese, and pepper. Place this mixture in the skins.

5

Place the skins in a baking dish. Bake 8 minutes, then top with parmesan cheese and bacon. Bake 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Top with sour cream and green onions to serve.
