I'm calling this recipe "no-waste" because regular potato skins recipes call for you to scoop out all the yummy stuff in the middle of the potato. Some recipes say to mix with the cheese while others want you not to use it at all. I had originally found this recipe on another website, however, I cannot find the link anywhere! I believe it must have been deleted...so my apologies, I wanted to give credit but oh well, onto the good stuff...
What you will need:Olive oil
6-8 large russet potatoes (or whatever kind you like)
Bacon bits or real bacon, crumbled
Shredded cheddar cheese and/or melted Velveeta cheese
Chives (optional. I didn't use them because 1. Didn't have them & 2. I'm nursing. Onions are NOT good for my boy lol)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Dice the potatoes in nice circles, just cut straight across...
Boil for about 5 minutes, or until a fork can pierce through...
Drain and overlap on a greased or sprayed pan, drizzle some olive oil, sprinkle cheese and bacon evenly and bake for about 15 minutes or until cheese is melted ...
WALA! Easy meal or appetizer, top with sour cream and indulge!
My fav recipe for those lazy days or moments I crave something that tastes like it was from a restaurant (you know what I mean)
Aw man, now I WANT some!!! *sigh*
Enjoy kids :)
