Week 11 – Stuffed Potato Skins

NFL 2019/2020 Season

Week Eleven

Stuffed Potato Skins


Good Morning Football Fans! Happy Gameday Sunday! This week better bring me better luck than the last 2 weeks. This week we have a very easy game day snack that is always a winner. Potato skins are delicious but why waste all the filling when you can load it with bacon and cheese and put it right back in that skin and devour a creamy cheese potato!! haha ok, I am most likely making you hungry – so I will shut up now and post the recipe!

Here are the Roster details for this weeks Line up!


  • 6 large russet potatoes
  • EVOO
  • 1 tsp Garlic powder
  • 1 tsp each salt & pepper
  • 3 tbsp Butter
  • 2 tbsp sour cream
  • ½ cup Crispy bacon pieces
  • ¼ cup diced Chives
  • 1 package Fine herbs Boursin cheese
  • 2 cups Old cheddar


  1. Wash your potatoes well and make sure they are dry
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper
  3. Brush oil on the outside of the potatoes and sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder
  4. Bake for 35-40 minutes
  5. Remove from oven and let rest – you want them cooler so you can cut them in half easier
  6. Turn oven down to 400
  7. Once cooled, with a sharp knife cut your potatoes in half
  8. Scoop out the middle (leave about a cm around the ends) and place in a bowl
  9. Add butter and sour cream and mash the potatoes (I left mine a little lumpy)
  10. Add chives, bacon, Boursin, and ½ cup of cheddar to the mashed potatoes and mix
  11. Scoop mixture into potato shells (heaping spoonful’s)
  12. The remaining Cheddar cheese goes on the top of the potato mixture
  13. Bake at 400 for about 18-20 minutes
  14. Garnish with more bacon and chives if desired and serve

Makes 12 portions
