Crispy garlic buttered potato skins filled with cheese and bacon are the perfect appetizer!
- 5 baked potatoes small
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
- ½ teaspoon parsley
- ¼ teaspoon seasoned salt
- ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
- 3 slices cooked bacon finely chopped or 3 tablespoons bacon bits
- 2 tablespoons chives or green onions
- 1 cup cheddar cheese
- sour cream for serving
Preheat oven to 425°F. Combine butter, parsley, seasoned salt and garlic powder in a small bowl. Set aside.
Ensure baked potatoes are cooled. Cut potatoes in half lengthwise. Using a small spoon, scoop out the flesh leaving a ¼” shell (or more if you’d prefer).
Brush both the inside and outside of the potatoes with the butter mixture. Place potatoes cut side down in baking dish. Bake 15 minutes.
Flip potatoes over and bake an additional 5 minutes or until slightly browned and crisp.
Fill each potato with cheese and bacon. Return to the oven for another 5-7 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly.
Remove from the oven, top with chives and serve with sour cream.
