Skinny Game Day Guacamole Potato Skins

It’s Game Day! And there is no shortage of great food on any given game day. I am not a sports girl, I am not even a football fan. If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time, you’d know I’m not much of a sports fan to begin with. So why am I excited about the super bowl? Or any game day for that matter?

I go for the food! haha And the friendship and fun. But mostly the food. :)

This year I am heading to a friends for the Super Bowl, and I’m taking along a big batch of these I made up this morning. I know they will be a hit!

These Skinny Game Day Guacamole Potato Skins are the perfect addition to any game day fare! And they are super easy, can be changed up in so many ways and are bite size which makes them even better! Plus they have avocado. And avocado (or guacamole) might just be my one weakness. I can eat avocado daily and never tire of it!

I will warn you. Make lots of these. They go super fast! I’ve made huge platters of them before and within 15 minutes of setting them down, they were gone! I always prepare some extra potatoes ahead of time so it’s not too hard to whip up another big batch. Even the guys love these, so be prepared.

Serves: 24 mini skins
Ingredients
  • 12 Yellow Baby Potatoes
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and Pepper
  • ¼ cup of Pancetta, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup of your favorite guacamole
  • ½ cup shredded mexican cheese
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Clean the whole potatoes, dry and rub olive oil around them.
  3. Place them on a baking sheet and bake for 35 minutes or until you can press gently and feel they are tender.
  4. Remove them from the oven and allow them to cool until you can handle them.
  5. Slice them in half, lengthwise and scoop out the flesh. Don’t scoop it all out, you need “walls” to hold the potatoes up. I use a melon baller and run it through once to get a small amount. Save the extra potato in a bowl and make some mashed potatoes! Yum!
  6. Place each of the cut potatoes back on the baking sheet, with the flesh side facing up. Rub olive oil across the tops.
  7. Chop the Pancetta… and allow to crisp in a skillet over medium high heat.
  8. Drain and allow to cool slightly.
  9. Fill each of the potato skins with a little bit of pancetta, then some shredded cheese. Pop them back into the oven for about 5-10 minutes, just until the cheese is melted.
  10. Remove and allow to cool just a bit.
  11. Top each potato skin with a dollop of guacamole, sprinkle the top with shredded cheese, onions or even more pancetta.
  12. EAT!!!

    These sound wonderful! I’m making both potato skins and guacamole for the game tonight and now I’m thinking I should just combine the two and make these! Thanks for sharing!

    Nicole, I was just so close to making potato skins for this week’s Sunday Supper, however, you get a big high five for being so creative to make them healthier with the addition of guacamole! I love this! PS: On your side bar, you have something about “St. Louis Happenings”….are you from St. Louis? I lived there for 3 wonderfully happy years and my daughter was born there!

      Bobbi, that’s the saddest thing I’ve ever heard. I’m such an avocado freak, I cannot even imagine how hard that has to be for you. Just close your eyes and move on, I am not one to torture someone! But they really are good! xoxo

      haha Shaina thank you! I am a guacamole fan too. I could eat it all the time. I loved piling it onto some potato skins and voila .. fun, different and a little more healthy than bacon and cheese! :) (plus they don’t require sour cream either!)
