Potato Skins


I have always loved potato skins but I thought they were just too much work to make at home. 
WRONG!!

These are so worth the wait, the labor is minimal


Potato Skins


4 baking potatos
6 slices of bacon
olive oil
salt 
fresh ground pepper
1 cup of grated cheddar cheese
Sour Cream
4 green onions, sliced



Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Scrub Potatoes well:)  Rub potatoes with olive oil and place on cookie sheet.  Sprinkle with kosher salt.  Bake for about 1 hour until potatoes are soft:)  
Meanwhile fry bacon until crisp.
When the potatoes are done, remove from the oven and slice in half lengthwise:) Allow to cool enough to handle and using a spoon, scoop out the meat of the potato leaving about 1/4 inch of potato:)  Brush both sides with olive oil and turn upside down on cookie sheet.
Bake for 8 minutes then flip, salt and pepper and bake for 8-9 minutes. Place cheese in each shell and add chopped bacon. 


 

Return to oven and bake just long enough for cheese to melt.  
Serve with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of sliced green onions.
