Ingredients for Potato Skins in Oven:

2 slices bacon, diced

2 cups potatoes, peeled and cubed

1 tablespoon onion, diced

1/2 teaspoon pepper

2 tablespoons butter

1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

How to cook Potato Skins in Oven:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 F degrees. Put the bacon pieces into a pan and fry them until crisp. Place the chopped bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the bacon until crispy, but not burnt. You can also use a griddle or large saute pan.
  2. When you have cooked the bacon, add it to a paper-towel lined bowl and pour off most of the grease into another bowl.
  3. In the same skillet you cooked the bacon in, add the cubed potatoes and season with salt and pepper. Cook over medium-high heat until the potatoes are browned and crisp, stirring occasionally. This should take about 8 minutes.
  4. Drain thoroughly on paper towels, then transfer to a baking sheet lined with foil or parchment paper. Place in the oven under the broiler until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side depending on your oven. Make sure to watch them so they don’t burn.
  5. While the potatoes are in the over, sprinkle the bacon on top and then top with shredded cheese. Return to broiler until cheese is bubbly, about 1 minute. Don’t let it burn.
  6. You can serve the potato skins immediately or store them in an airtight container or plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

How long do potato skins take to bake?

Are potato skins healthy?

Potatoes are naturally healthy foods and they are also relatively low in calories. They contain carbohydrates and a lot of potassium, which is good for the heart and helps to lower blood pressure.

Tips To Make Tasty Potato Skins in Oven

1.) Don’t use old or under cooking potatoes or you may end up with soggy skins. Younger, new potatoes are best.

2.) Don’t use russet potatoes as they turn out soggy.

3.) Use a cast iron pan to make the potato skins crispy on the outside, but soft and flavorful on the inside.

4.) Don’t peel the potatoes before you cut them into cubes and boil them in their jackets (skin). You can eat it without peeling them, but if you want to remove the skin then you must.
