Treat Tuesday #71...

Treat Tuesday - Easy Potato Skins

*The holidays have begun and that means appetizer time.

*My wife was off to a cookie exchange on Sunday night and had to bring an appetizer.  She didn't feel like hitting the grocery and was able to make these with all the stuff we had right in the house.

*She said they were easy to make and I said they were "tasty."

  • *4 large baking potatoes (washed)
  • *3 TB butter, melted
  • *2 teaspoons of kosher salt
  • *1 1/2- 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
  • *7 slices bacon -cooked and crumbled (or 1/2 cup bacon bits)
  1. Pre-heat oven to 400°. Cover a baking sheet with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Wash potatoes and then cut the ends of the potatoes off and discard. Next cut the rest of the potatoes into approximately 1/2 inch slices.
  3. Brush both sides and edges of the potatoes with butter and sprinkle with salt. Place on the foil covered pan and bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until lightly browned. Turn potatoes onto the opposite side after about 15 minutes, to brown the other side.
  4. When potatoes are done, top with cheese, bacon and green onions. Continue baking for 3-5 minutes, or until the cheese in nice and bubbly.
  5. These also taste great topped with a little sour cream. Enjoy!
