How to Make Once, Twice, Three Times a Potato Skin


  1. I like to do these as quick as possible! Wash potatoes and poke a few holes in them. Arrange them on a dish making a full circle and microwave for 13 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes or dig right in! Cut potatoes in halves long ways and scoop out the filling into a small bowl. Mix in sour cream, milk, butter, crumbled bacon, and salt and pepper to taste. Spray a non stick oil/butter on the potato shells and place in the oven on broil for 5 minutes to get crispy. Remove from oven and add filling. Top with cheese and put back in the oven on broil until cheese is brown. Voila! A tasty side or appetizer for family or friends.
