Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cook Time: 35 Minutes
Total Time: 45 Minutes
- 6 russet potatoes, baked
- 3-4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
- 2 tbsp. butter, melted
- 1 cup cheddar cheese
- ¼ tsp. garlic powder
- ½ tsp. seasoned salt
- 2-3 tbsp. green onions, fresh, chopped, to garnish
- Toby’s Ranch Dressing & Dip
To begin preparing your Crispy Loaded Potato Skins, gather all of the ingredients. Heat up the oven to 425 degrees F.
Combine the melted butter, seasoned salt, and garlic powder in a small bowl and set it aside to use later.
Cut each of the pre baked potatoes in half lengthwise. Using a spoon, scoop out the middle part of the potato leaving about 1/4″ shell.
Brush over both the inside and outside of the potatoes with the butter mixture you prepped earlier. Place the potatoes flat side down on a baking sheet and place them in the oven for 15 minutes.
After that, flip the potatoes over and bake them for an additional 5 minutes, or until light golden and crisp.
Remove your potatoes from the oven. Fill each potato with cheddar cheese and crumbled bacon. Return them to the oven for another 5-7 minutes, or until the cheese is fully melted and bubbly.
Again remove them from the oven. Top you potatoes with freshly chopped green onion and serve with a full ramekin of Toby’s Ranch Dressing & Dip. Enjoy your Crispy Loaded Potato Skins!
