Cheesy Tater Skins

I call this divine dish of yumminess.... "party food"! Because they are so yummy that when I eat them my stomach has a little "party!" (yours will too)!  I like to dip mine in my homemade Bleu Cheese Dipping sauce (August 19th post)...but they are also really scrumptious as they are or with a side of ranch to dip them in. Kids, both young and old, will fall madly in love with these Cheesy Tater Skins. It won't matter whether you're having them for dinner or if you are serving them at a party, they will become a family favorite. Eat them with a group or eat them all alone....it doesn't matter how you do it, just do it...you won't regret it (just don't get on the scale)......

Cheesy Tater Skins

There isn't really a set amount of ingredient, just make as much as you want.

Baked potatoes, cooled. Cut each potato into fourth's then carefully clean out the insides, leaving about 1/4 inch around the potato skin. 

Grated cheese ( I used Monterey Jack and Cheddar)
Margarine or Butter, melted

Dipping sauces; BBQ Sauce, Bleu Cheese, Sour Cream, Clam Dip, Ranch or salsa

Brush each potato skin with melted butter and place on a baking sheet with the skin side down. BROIL for 5-6 minutes or until crisp and brown. Sprinkle with cheeses broil for 1 more minute or until cheese is melted. Serve immediately with your favorite dipping sauce, or eat them plain. 


Happy Cooking~
