Potato Skins

Don't let the potato flesh go to waste. It can be made into a delicious breakfast side dish the next morning. Just cook with some oil, salt and pepper in a hot skillet, and then top with chopped bacon or sauteed vegetables. Perfect with any type of eggs."


4 russet potatoes, cleaned well
2 tablespoons unsalted melted butter, kept warm
sea or kosher salt, to taste
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 cup shredded Cheddar
4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
sour cream, to taste
2 tablespoons chopped chives


1.   Preheat the Compact Toaster Oven Broiler set to Bake at 350°F with the rack in position A for 5 minutes.

2.   Prick the potatoes with the tines of a fork on all sides. Place the potatoes directly on the rack and bake until potatoes are fork-tender, about 60 minutes.

3.   Remove potatoes and let rest until cool enough to handle.
Increase temperature to 425°F.

4.   Halve potatoes lengthwise and scoop out flesh, leaving a ¼-inch shell.

5.   Brush both sides of the potato halves with the melted butter and season with salt and pepper. Arrange the halves on the foil-lined baking pan.

6.   Evenly distribute the cheese on top of each half, and then top with the bacon.

7.   Bake skins for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

8.   Remove and with a sharp knife halve each skin to make a total of 16 wedges. Top with the sour cream and chopped chives. Serve immediately.
