Something fun! On occasion– say, when there’s a game or movie we want to watch– Mr. Big Food will whip up some “bar food” instead of an honest-to-goodness supper. Why not? ‘Tis the season.
YUMMY BAKED POTATO SKINS
4 large baking potatoes, baked
3 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 Tbsp shredded Parmesan cheese
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp paprika
1/8 tsp pepper
8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbed
2 C (8 oz) shredded yellow cheese
½ C sour cream
4 green onions, sliced
Cut baked potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop out pulp (save for another use), leaving ¼ inch shells. Place shells on a greased baking sheet. Combine oil, Parmesan cheese, salt, garlic powder, paprika and pepper and brush all over potato skins. Bake at 475° for about 8 minutes. Turn shells over and bake for another 8 minutes or so. Turn right side up. Sprinkle bacon and cheddar evenly inside of skins, and bake 2 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Top baked skins with sour cream and green onions.
