Loaded Potato Skins

Hi everyone! I have this very simple recipe for you all today that will knock your socks off! Loaded potato skins. OH YEAH! Whenever Jeremy and I go out to dinner we often get an appetizer and there is always cheese on it. Cheese is our favorite. We normally get cheese fries or potato skins so on the 4th I wanted to make these for a nice treat. And wow, they were amazing!

These are so easy I made a little diagram for ya to show the steps!

1. Bake off your potatoes. These medium sized potatoes took 1 hours at 400 degrees. Make sure to scrub them real good under running water first to get all the dirt off them. Yuckie.

2. Cut in half and scoop out the insides with a spoon. Save the insides for something else like mashed potatoes or potato cakes!

3. Cut them into 4th’s and brush with melted butter and season with salt and pepper to your taste.

4. Cut the bacon into 1/2 strips and fry until crispy.

5. Place the skins in an oven safe dish and top with the cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for about 3-5 minutes until the cheese is just melted. Top with the sour cream then the bacon. Add the green onions finely sliced for garnish if you prefer!

See how easy that was?! WOW and YUMMMM! I hope you enjoyed this recipe! Dig in!

  1. I’ve never made anything like this, but I use to eat loaded potato skins all the time when I worked in a restaurant. I’m going to have to make a non-dairy version of these. I’m seriously craving it now!

    (P.S. found you through the FFF Friday Follow Along Party.)

  2. I LOVE potato skins! Can’t believe I’ve not actually made any for myself, though! 🙂 Thank you so much for linking up with me this week at Tasty Tuesdays! I’ve pinned this & shared it with my followers! Please be sure to stop back by the party and check out some of the other links!

  5. I looooooooooove these potato skins!
    I’m pretty sure they’re going to be a hit with my family (although without the bacon as it’s forbidden for us)
