I’m going to show you how to make Potato skins recipe.
- Some Thick Slices Of Bacon
- Some Cooked Potatoes
- Sharp Cheddar
- Some Green Onions
- Salt And Pepper
- Little Bit Of Olive Oil
- Use Sour Cream
1You’re going to need some thick slices of bacon. You’re going to some cooked potatoes..I have some freshly grated extra sharp cheddar I have some green onions that I have finely chopped salt and pepper and a little bit of olive oil and then. you can use sour cream at the end if you prefer. Now for the bacon you want to bring it your oven to 450 means everything your 450 so it doesn’t matter create the other so that’s nice and hot for your potatoes.
2All the way through or you can cook them in the oven at 400 for a couple of hours because these are russet potatoes. So they’re really big, so they’ll take a while I made mine in the oven because I had the oven on but it doesn’t matter whichever way you do it you just want them to be just about all the way cooked through. Now the potatoes and the bacon I’m going to kind of cook at the same time. So I’m going to prep my potatoes here I’m going to do you want to take your potato that’s just about cooked all the way through what am i doing with that little bitty knife. I’m going to cut this in half just like so and with the spoon.
3I’m going to scoop out all the flesh leaving about a quarter inch water around just so that the potato can keep its shape while we cook them in the oven now . And then I cut each half and half so each potato is going to be in four pieces and then I put some olive oil at the bottom of my baking sheet so that the bottom of the potato kind of crisps up and now I’m just going to drizzle the top with a bit more olive oil because I want everything to be crispy.And then just season it with salt and pepper. Ptatoes need seasoning otherwise they’ll taste like nothing and now this along with the bacon is going to go into your preheated oven at 450 for about 20 minutes or until the potatoes are super crispy. And so is the bacon my potatoes baked for about 25 minutes and the bacon only cooked for about 15 and then I let it drain and I rough chopped it now all. I’m going to do is top these it’s that simple. I’m going to do the cheddar and you don’t have to be perfect you’re precise.
4I’m just going to top that with the bacon again just scatter it all over the top it does not have to be perfect because once it cooks together and the cheese melts the cheese kind of becomes the glue for the beggin of scallions to stick to and lastly and this is totally optional. I’m going to scatter just a few scallions over the top.
5I like to kind of like freshness and it’s got a little bit of an interesting flavor to me anyway. So it gets away from that cheese and bacon it just gives it a little something extra that you know kind of takes away from all the richness now this is going to go back into your 450 degree oven for about 5 to 10 minutes or until the cheese is nutty and golden and bubbly and melted. These went back into the oven for literally 5 minutes or until the cheese melted which takes absolutely no time. Since everything else is already cooked but that’s it they’re quick and simple to do you don’t have to think about the fryer the grease all the hassle.
