Easy Baked Potato Skins
top quarter of a baked potato, cut horizontally (see note)
sharp cheddar cheese, grated (1-2 teaspoons per skin)
a few pieces of bacon, crumbled (about 1 teaspoon per skin)
optional toppings for serving: sour cream, salsa, scallions, black olives
Place potato skins, skin side down, on a baking sheet and top with cheese and bacon. Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes or until the potatoes are crispy and golden brown.
If you don’t have leftovers, start with whole potatoes and bake or microwave until done. Quarter the potatoes and scoop out flesh, leaving a 1/4-inch layer on the skins.
