Cheesy, creamy, with bacon and a little bit of spice…what I wish every meal could be. Loaded Potato Skins or potato boats, as some like to call them, are the ultimate appetizer. It is a mini version of meat and potatoes but loaded with cheese. Who doesn’t want that before the actual meal? The only thing I hate about ordering potato skins from restaurants is that there is never enough bacon, or cheese, or filling. I have had some sad potato skins, I still ate them…but they were definitely sad. The only way to lift my spirits and gain a few extra pounds was to make an easy recipe that had enough bacon and cheese to make anybody smile.
Delicious Rating: OMGoodness! I didn’t want to share these at all. The first mistake when cooking something super delicious: cooking for other people. DH and I could have devoured the whole lot of these potato skins but instead shared them with company. Dang you company!
I think this recipe is perfect. Seriously. I overdid it on the cheese and the bacon so that there was no want. I used green onions for a more subtle onion taste but with some greenery. This is now my go to recipe for potato skins. I change the level of spice on the skins coating and the filling depending on my mood, as can you. Plus, this recipe is super easy and doesn’t require a lot of ingredients. Bake some up and let me know how they turned out for you! FOR RECIPE & PHOTO GUIDE CLICK → →
