    1 hr 30 mins


  1. 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.)
  2. 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.

I was looking to get restaurant quality potato skins and found this recipe to be the best, although I tweaked it after following the above recipe. For crispier skins, I used some of the bacon grease to coat the potato inside and out (after scooping out the potato), and baked. Yes it's more calories and fat, but there's nothing healthy about it anyway. Definitely adds a lot more flavor. I also like to add tomatoes to the finished product and use a lite or FF ranch instead of sour cream, again personal preference. UPDATE: I posted a pic of baked French fries/wedges (another AR best) and microwaved the cheese and bacon and adding the chives and tomatoes and ranch. WAY healthier - using olive oil (no bacon grease) and spices... AND A HUGE TIME SAVER. The wedges freeze well and it's a super fast and healthier snack for the kids. Enjoy!!

These turned out to be very good. I baked at 450 for about 15 min to get crispy. Not full of fancy ingredients, just a solid recipe for a delicious potato skin. I think most people would enjoy this recipe.

Exellent! Everyone in my house loved them!! I baked my potatoes in the microwave (fork holes in them, coat w/ oil and sprinkle with kosher salt.)

Perfect! I sprinkled a little onion powder on the inside after I brushed with the oil & butter- my son said they were better than Friday's!
