Potato Skins

I like twice baked potatoes, but my favorite is stuffed, fried potato skins. Some times we will have an appetizer meal with skins being one of the stars. For basics, I like bacon, cheddar cheese, pickled japs, sour cream and hot sauce. Pulled pork with sauce and a white cheese is also great. Mexican fillings, especially chorizo, cotija and salsa. How do you like your skins?

Years ago when my daughter was feeding the whole fam damily, it was my job to make the twice baked potatoes, (along with the holiday cake.) Usually I buy a five or ten pound bag of Russets. But with as many mouths to be stuffed, I handpicked out large even sized taters and cut them lengthwise after they baked. Some had sour cream, some sour cream with scallions, some with cheese, etc. I pretty well knew who like what and they had a whole one each. (two halves) For those who ate only one half, it left the other half for someone to try.

I prefer to fill them with bacon, cheese, and some sour cream, but a couple of weeks ago I didn't have anything except the potatoes and the cheese. So I thawed some hamburger, cooked it up, and stuffed the skins with that and threw some cheese on top. That was pretty good and I found out that rubbing olive oil over the skins and putting them under the broiler will crisp them up almost as much as frying them.

I cook because my pots and pans are the closest thing to a chemistry experiment that I have. So far I haven't blown up the kitchen!
