Potato Skins with Cheddar, Bacon and Shallots



Now that the holidays are here and the Super Bowl is a month and a half away, I thought it would be great to add an appetizer recipe right about now.  Check out today’s guest post from Georgia at The Comfort of Cooking! When I saw her Potato Skins I knew I had to make them!  Aren’t they amazing?!  This is the kind of appetizer that I can’t pass up in the restaurants.  I love them!      

This recipe serves 8 and the ingredients are basic – any kind of potatoes (I used red),  bacon, shallots, cheddar, milk and butter. For garnishes, top with more cheddar, parsley and scallions, if you’d like. Or, get creative with your own fixings! First, I just pricked the potatoes with a fork and baked them for an hour. Once they were out, the top third was sliced off, the flesh scooped out and mashed with the good stuff mentioned above. Then, back into the hollowed-out skins the mashed potatoes went, which were baked to a crisp and sprinkled with tasty toppings. I’m really looking forward to making these potato skins again. I know you will enjoy them, too, for any big or small celebration with friends and family. They’re super simple, scrumptious and will have your guests begging for more! Enjoy!


Thanks for sharing your yummy recipe with us, Georgia!
