It’s really hard to resist loaded potato skins. We order them at restaurants, eat bad crunchy snacks flavored like them, and now we’re trying to make at home! The good news is, loaded potato skins are super easy to make, and you may already have the ingredients sitting in your cabinet and fridge. Here is how to make these bacony, cheesy, potatoey skins of joy!
Baked potatoes are your starting point. You can make these in the microwave if you want to take the easy route, or pop them in the oven if that’s your preferred method. When they cool down, cut them in half longways and scoop out the innards. These potato guts will make a delicious snack while you bake the skins on their next turn in the oven. May we suggest Dan-O’s Seasoning, butter, and parm cheese on these innards? Yum!
When you have you have scooped out your innards into a little bowl (be sure to leave some potato inside for sustenance), you will need to bake them again on both sides. I coat mine in bacon fat instead of oil or butter for extra flavor! For the toppings, use Dan-O’s Seasoning flavored bacon, cheddar cheese, and green onions or chives.
Serve these up with some sour cream, your favorite protein, and a salad. Or just eat them as a snack because they’re Dan Good! Enjoy!
