A Bonus Recipe – Leftover Potato Skins
Hi! Yesterday I shared my recipe for Twice Baked Potatoes, and didn’t they look amazing and delicious and well worth the little bit of extra time they took to make? I have a bonus recipe to use the leftover potato skins you might have from making these terrific spuds.
I think these should serve one person each, however if you decide to make these for sports snacks, you may want to count on a couple extra, because they are so good, everyone will want more.
They are pretty easy to make too, once the initial work of cooking, cutting, scooping the insides is done, like you’d have if you’ve made Twice Baked Potatoes. Don’t get me wrong, you can easily make just mashed potatoes and keep the skins to make this yummy snack instead.
I bake most items on parchment, makes for easy cleanup, Just line up your skins on your cookie sheet.
Cube up some Velveeta, I love to add plenty to fill the boats completely.
Top them with scallions and crispy bacon. If you fill up a whole tray, you can also flash freeze these. Simply finish them to this point. Then put them in the freezer for about 1.5 hours. Take them and put them into gallon Ziplocs and freeze until needed. I have seen these for $10 for a box of less than 10 skins. You can create better tasting ones for much less money.
Bake for 15-20 minutes at 400 degrees until the cheese is melted, then top with sour cream if desired.
