Cheesy Bacon Potato Skins Recipe

I'm pretty fortunate that both my husband and I love to cook. Matter of fact, he makes dinner for the family 3 times a week and when we host special parties and/or family get-together's, he helps with the menu planning & cooking then too! As a busy grandmother, mom, wife and business owner, I always appreciate his help.

Last weekend we had a few guests over to our home for a casual dinner together. He grilled up some delicious steaks and hamburgers and served these yummy Cheesy Bacon Potato Skins along with grilled corn-on-the-cob and our guests raved and raved about the potato skins! Here's the recipe!

Cheesy Bacon Potato Skins Recipe

Cheesy Bacon Potato Skins Recipe

4-5 large white baking potatoes
salt and ground black pepper (if desired)
3 Tbsp. melted butter
2 cups shredded cheese
6 slices of cooked & crumbled bacon
1/8 cup finely chopped green onions

Note: for the shredded cheese...we blended together cheddar, Italian and mozzarella cheese.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.

Wash and dry potatoes. Slice potatoes into 1/4" to 1/2" thick slices. Brush all sides of the potato slices with the melted butter and lay them onto your prepared cookie/baking sheet. Sprinkle salt & ground black pepper onto them if desired. Place sheet into the oven and bake for 30 minutes or until the slices are fork-tender. Remove and flip the slices over. Place back into the oven for an additional 12-14 minutes.

Remove baking sheet from the oven and top them with the finely chopped green onions, shredded cheese and crumbled bacon. Place the baking sheet back into the oven and bake for an additional 5-7 minutes or until done. Remove and let them sit on the baking sheet for an additional 3-5 minutes before serving.
