Stuffed Potato Skins

Hi! I am back with another potato+bacon+butter recipe which is pretty much like my accidental side dish, only this time it has cheese, and presentation wise, it looks more delish and I did some scooping and ugh, I hurt my left hand, so please be careful while taking out the insides of the potatoes. ;) Ok, I talk too much!


cooking oil
cheddar cheese
minced garlic


  1. Scrub the potatoes, wash it, cut it in half.
  2. Poke the potatoes with a fork so as the insides will be cooked as well.
  3. Deep fry the potatoes.
  4. While the potatoes are cooking. Fry your bacon using butter (because butter is tastier and uhm, yeah, it has more calories, but whatever! :))
  5. Separate your bacon for the stuffing and toppings. *wink wink*
  6. Use paper towels to absorb excess oil on the potatoes. Let it cool.
  7. Use a spoon to carefully scoop the insides of the potatoes. Reserve the ones that you had scooped for later, leaving about 1/4 of an inch of potato on the skin.
  8. Brush a fair amount of butter on the insides of the skin.
  9. For the stuffing, mash the potatoes that you had scooped earlier, bacon bits (with a fair amount of the butter that you used to fry it), and minced garlic. Mix everything. 
  10. Season it with salt and pepper.
  11. In a toaster pan, evenly distribute the minced garlic, and spread a fair amount of butter into it.
  12. Stuff your potato skin with the mixture you had made.
  13. Top it off with cheese and bacon, and all the pretty things in the world.
  14. Bake it and since I do not have a baking oven, I am using our dependable oven toaster, switch it to 10.
  15. Drum roll, please. 
  16. And voila, let the potato feast begin! :)
