Lindsay's Baked Potato Skins

We had some friends in one night for appetizers and drinks and a friend brought these and since then, they have been added to our list of favourites! They really aren’t very difficult to make and the spices add a delectable flavour that everyone will enjoy – they are as good as any you would buy out at a pub!


5 baking potatoes, baked
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon pepper
8 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled (can use ready crisp)
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
4 green onions, sliced
1 tomato diced


Cut potatoes in half lengthwise; scoop out some of the pulp to thin them out, leaving about half in the shell and then cut into quarters.

Place potato 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 F for 7 minutes on each side; may need to Broil them for a couple minutes.

Sprinkle bacon and cheddar cheese inside skins. Bake 2 minutes longer or until the cheese is melted. Top with sour cream, onion and tomatoes. Serve immediately.
