  • 8 large baking potatoes
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup Monterey Jack cheese, grated
  • 1 cup Cheddar cheese, grated
  • 8 slices bacon, crisp and crumbled
  • 1/3 cup scallions, chopped
  • 1 carton sour cream


Bake potatoes in the oven at 350 degrees F for 1 hour or until soft. Cut each potato in half and scoop out the inside of the potato. (Can reserve the inside of the potato to use in some other recipe, if desired). Brush the inside of each potato jacket with olive oil and sprinkle with a small amount of salt and pepper. Return to the oven for 10-15 minutes, until the inside of the potatoes are brown. Remove potatoes from the oven. Spread the inside of the jackets with the Monterey and Cheddar cheese. Add the bacon and scallions on top. Place back in the oven until cheese melts. Serve with sour cream.

  • Guacamole
  • 1/4 cup margarine or butter (melted)
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika

Brush outside and inside of shells with margarine. Cut each half lengthwise into halves. Mix salt and paprika; sprinkle over insides of shells. Place shells, cut sides up on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake, uncovered, until edges are brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Serve with guacamole, sour cream and bacon. Makes 25 appetizers.

The first time I had potato skins, it was an appetizer at a Beverly Hills restaurant. They were so good, I wanted to have them all the time. Years later, they became a fad, but the ones that became a fad weren't anything like the ones I member.


The ones I remember were actually very crisp potato skins, cut into lengthwise quarters, like long, dark, thick potato chips. They had no potato "insides" at all on them. They were merely spread with creamy peanut butter or sauté sauce, which had melted slightly from the warmth of the skins.

This was a delicate, lovely, yummy appetizer. How do you crisp empty potato skins? Ten minutes at 375.
