Super Spud Skins

April 14, 2016

These terrific ‘taters are always a tasty treat.

Load them up with your favourite toppings, and enjoy an a-peeling feast!

You’ll need:

  • 8 potatoes
  • 2 Tbsp butter, melted
  • Sea salt, pepper, and other desired seasonings
  • 2 cups grated cheese
  • 2 cups bacon, fried and diced
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 2 Tbsp chives, finely chopped

To make:

Heat the oven to 200°C. Pierce each potato with a fork and bake directly on the oven rack for 60 minutes, or until the skins are crispy and the insides are soft. Leave to cool for about 10 minutes, then cut in half and scoop out the flesh (keep it for later — it’ll make a great mash!).

Leave about ¼ inch of flesh inside each skin. Brush them inside and out with melted butter, and season to taste. Pop them onto a tray with baking paper, then bake them for another 2-3 minutes, skin-side up. Flip them, top them with cheese and bacon, and bake for another 2-3 minutes or until cheese melts.

Get them out of the oven, drizzle with sauce, add a bit of sour cream, sprinkle with chives, and voilà! Enjoy the spudtastic results.
