Baked Potato Skins

My son is taking a cooking/sewing class in junior high.  He missed class one day, so he got to make these for our family at home.  He made these for us with very little help or instruction from me :)  They are easy and we loved them!!

Baked Potato Skin

4 baked potatoes
3 T oil
1 T grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 t garlic powder
1/4 t paprika
1/8 t pepper
4 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
1 c shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 c sour cream
1 sliced green onion

Directions:  Cut potatoes in half lengthwise;  scoop out pulp, leaving a 1/4-in. shell (save pulp for another use).  Place potatoes skins on a greased baking sheet.  Combine oil, Parmesan cheese, salt, garlic powder, paprika and pepper;  **brush over both sides of skins.  Bake at 475 degrees for 7 minutes;  turn.  Bake until crisps, about 7 more minutes.  Sprinkle bacon and cheddar cheese inside skins.  Bake 2 minutes loner or until the cheese is melted.  Top with sour cream and onions.  Serve immediately.

**We found it easier to dip the potatoes into the oil mixture, rather than brushing it on the potato.
Pin It!
