Why I Love This Recipe

Quick and filling appetizer to hold over until main dish is served

Ingredients You'll Need

4 small russet potatoes

1 tablespoon of olive oil

1 tablespoon of melted butter

1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

1/4 cup mozzarella, shredded

1/2 cup fried bacon, crumbled

Salt and pepper

Serve with sour cream and green onion


1) Preheat your oven to 425

2) Scrub the potatoes thoroughly, and allow them to dry

3) Pierce each potato 4-5 time with a fork

4) Rub potatoes with olive oil and season lightly with salt and pepper to taste

5) Bake on a baking sheet lined with foil or parchment paper for 1 ho

6) Allow the potatoes to cool

7) Once cooled, set your oven to 375

8) Cut each potato in half lengthwise

9) Using a spoon, gently scoop out most (but not all) of the white inside from each potato. You should aim to leave about 1/4 inch in each skin

10) Melt the butter and brush the insides of the potato skins. Bake them hollow-side down for about 10 minutes

11) Remove the potatoes, brush the outside of the skins with butter, and gently turn them over (hollow-side up). Bake for another 15 minutes, or until the skin gets crispy and the edges start to brown

12) Sprinkle the cheese and bacon over the potato skins and return then to the oven for a few minutes until melted and bubbling

13) Serve with sour cream and green onion
