Cheesy Potato Skins

Cheesy Potato Skins
These cheesy potato skins are a game day must have at our home. They are so good and definitely rival any that you can get at a restaurant. I am not going to do exact measurements because you can do as much or as little as you like of these.

Cheesy Potato Skins

Save Recipe


  • Pre-baked Potatoes
  • Cheddar Cheese
  • Cooked and Crumbled Bacon
  • Melted Butter


  • If you bake the potatoes in aluminum foil be sure to unwrap them right out of the oven so the skins don't get soggy. Once they are cool enough cut the potatoes in half and scoop out the center, leaving about a 1/2 inch layer of potato. Brush the potatoes all over with melted butter and put under the broiler for about 6 to 8 minutes or until they look a little browned. Now add the cheese and bacon and broil again for 1 to 2 more minutes or until the cheese is melted.
  • Serve with a side of sour cream sprinkled with chives.

    I have found that if you rub your spuds lightly with some before baking shortning, the skins will be a little crisp which makes them hold up better for making these skins.
