Potato Skins

by CHERI on January 22, 2011

Who says you have to get Potato Skins at TGI Friday’s? I’ve heard that my recipe is similar to the Pioneer Woman’s.
To make these a healthier I use olive oil with sea salt–oh so yummy!!

Green Onion, chopped

Sour Cream

Wash your potatoes.

I slice into mine so they cook more evenly but I leave them whole.

I then bake them at 400 degrees for an hour till the are soft.

While the potatoes are baking you will cook up your bacon Follow Me on Pinterest  chop your green onions and grab the bag of shredded cheese.

Slice the potatoes in half and scoop out some of the soft potato filling.

I then press the remaining potato into the skin-Packing it in.

Flip the potatoes upside down.

Brush the outside of the potato skins with olive oil and with the skins facing UP, grind some salt over them.

 Place them on a cookie sheet

and bake at 400 degrees for another 8-10 minutes.

Flip all of the potatoe skins over so the flesh side is UP.

Brush the inside of the boat with olive oil and salt the insides.

Bake another 8-10 minutes.

Now it is time to load those babies up with all the fixins’.

MMMMmmmmmm–Everyone will LOVE you when you serve these babies up.

My family says they are better than any restaurant ones and I agree.

I’m so hungry now, Cheri! I love these and I haven’t had them in so long. Luckily, they are something I can still enjoy {since having to go gluten free a few years ago}. I think I’ll be printing this out and adding it to the Superbowl menu! : )
