Description

Who doesn’t love potato skins? No one, I say!

Ingredients

  • 8 whole Russet Potatoes
  • 4 Tablespoons Canola Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • Salt To Taste
  • 1-½ cup Grated Cheddar Cheese
  • 8 slices Thick Cut Peppered Bacon, Fried Until Almost Crisp And Chopped
  • 2 whole Green Onions, Sliced
  • ½ cups Sour Cream

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Scrub potatoes clean and allow them to dry. With a paper towel (or just with your hands) rub the skin of the potatoes with 2 tablespoons canola oil so that they’re nice and moist.

Place potatoes on a baking sheet and bake until skin is crisp and potatoes are tender, about 30 to 40 minutes. Remove the pan and allow to cool until you can handle the potatoes.

Cut potatoes in half lengthwise. Scoop out the insides, leaving a little bit of potato in the skins. Melt the butter with 2 tablespoons canola oil, then brush both the outside and the inside of the potatoes. Sprinkle the inside lightly with salt. Place potato halves face-down and return to the oven for 5 to 8 minutes. Using tongs, turn the potatoes over and continue to bake until the edges of the potatoes start to turn golden brown.

Remove from oven. Sprinkle the insides of the potato skins with cheddar, then sprinkle on the chopped bacon. Return to the oven long enough for the cheese to melt, about 3 to 4 minutes.

Serve immediately with sour cream and green onions. Yum!

We made this recipe exactly as written for a kitchen-warming party we had (of course all our food was made in the new ovens) and these potato skins were amazingly delicious. I highly recommend them!
