Easy Potato Skins Recipe
Idaho potatoes, scrubbed and dry
tablespoons olive oil
cups shredded cheese
to 6 slices cooked, chopped bacon
tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Pierce each potato with a fork a few times on each side. Place the potatoes on a pan in the oven, and bake about 45 minutes, or until the skins are crisp and the potatoes feel soft.
Remove from oven and move to a wire rack to cool about 20 minutes.
Change the oven temperature to broil.
Slice each Idaho potato in half lengthwise. Using a melon baller, scoop out the potato flesh, leaving about ¼ inch on all sides.
Brush the potato skins all over with the olive oil and sprinkle the skin side with salt.
Evenly space the potato halves on a baking sheet and broil about about 2 to 3 minutes or until the skins begin to crisp a little. Do NOT over-broil. Keep watching so they don't burn! I only went about 2 minutes. Possibly a little less.
Remove from oven and fill each skin with shredded cheese and bacon.
Return to broiler and broil about 4 to 5 minutes, or until cheese is completely melted and bubbly.
