Kiki’s Kitchen: 49ers Potato Skins

26 Jan

In honor of the Superbowl next week, I decided to whip up a yummy batch of potato skins. I heart potato skins! The crispy skin, melt cheese, bacon, and chives make for a delicious treat for your mouth. They’re the perfect game day snack. I’ve lovingly dubbed these the “49ers Potato Skins” since I’m a NorCal girl. Next week I’ll be featuring a Baltimore Ravens-inspired recipe. Go Niners!

STEP ONE: Wash and clean 3 to 4 russet potatoes. Dry them off and rub 1/4 teaspoon of olive oil on the outside of the potato. Using a fork puncture the potatoes six to seven times. Place the potatoes in backing dish and bake for 1 hour in the oven at 400.


STEP TWO: Cut potatoes in half.


STEP THREE: Cut potatoes in quarters.


STEP FOUR: Remove the flesh from the potatoes using a knife or spoon.

STEP SIX: Sprinkle mixture on top of the potatoes.
