I used red potatoes that I steamed in the microwave, I shelled out the inside until I had about 2 cm or so of potato left in the skin. Since I did this on Tuesday I took them out of the oven when I took my meat out of the fridge and placed them on a baking sheet in the oven on warm for a little over an hour.
Now if you are using them warm then just put them in a 350 degree oven to get slightly crisp.
After my potatoes were crisp I added chopped bacon to them.
|A lot of bacon!|
Then I added shredded cheese.
Next I added sliced green onions, and a lot of them because we love green onions in this house.
I returned them to the oven and let the cheese melt. This time they were in the oven at 350 while my meat finished cooking.
I took them out of the oven and topped with a dollop of sour cream and there you have it! Chili’s inspired baked potato skins a great and cheap side that is versatile. I will be making some other variations of this again soon!
