Cheesy Potato Skins
- 6 small baking potatoes
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 2 teaspoons seasoned salt
- 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
- 4 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
- sour cream for topping (optional)
- diced fresh chives for topping (optional)
- Lightly grease the outside of potatoes, cut small slit in the top and bake at 425 degrees for 45 minute or until soft.
- Let stand until cool enough to handle (about 15 minutes).
- Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop out the cooked potato, leaving a very thin layer of potato (save the cooked potato for mashed potatoes or hash browns).
- Brush the outside and inside of skins with melted butter.
- Sprinkle the inside with seasoned salt and Parmesan cheese.
- Place on a lightly greased baking sheet.
- Bake for 8 minutes or until crisp and bubbly.
- Fill each with Cheddar cheese and bacon.
- Bake 3 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
- Top with a dollop of sour cream and sprinkle of chives if desired.
To save on cooking time for 45 minutes, prick the potato and place in microwave for 8 minutes or in a potato bag in the microwave.
