WHAT ARE THE BASIC INGREDIENTS THAT GO INTO MAKING THESE MINI POTATO SKINS?

 

Here are the four basic ingredients with a few toppings you may like…

  2. Place washed potatoes on the bottom of a large pot. Fill with cold water and bring to a boil. Add a dash of salt. Cook until potatoes are fork tender. 
  3. When potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut in half. Gently scoop out inside of potatoes and place in a mixing bowl. Add  butter and mix around. Add 1/2 cup cheese and bacon bits. Mix gently to combine.
