Potato Skins Recipe


8 small potatoes or 4 large potatoes, baked or microwaved
1 1/2 tbsp. vegetable oil/canola oil
1 1/2 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. black pepper
8-10 strips of bacon, cooked and chopped
1 1/2 cups of shredded cheese (I use pepper jack or colby)
1/2 cup sour cream
2 green onions, sliced



Preheat oven to 475. Cut potatoes in half, lengthwise. After cooled, scoop out pulp, carefully leaving about 1/4 – 1/2 inch of pulp in skin. Place potato skins on a greased baking sheet. In a small bowl, combine oils, salt, garlic powder, paprika, and pepper. Brush over both sides of the potato skins. Bake 7 minutes, flip, bake 7 minutes longer. Add bacon and cheese. Bake additional 2 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes before topping with sour cream and onions.

    I love this recipe. I made it and it came out better than the ones you get as an appetizer at a popular chain. Thank you.
