WOW! What an easy and delicious potato skin recipe! I used red bliss potatoes as I love the flavor of them especially with cheese. Also their skins aren't tough. I cheated and used Hormel bacon pieces plus I used extra sharp cheddar and freeze dried.... Read more
- 3 potatoes, russet (large)
- 1/4 cup oil (vegetable oil)
- Salt and pepper, to taste

Scoop out the pulp leaving just a bit in the skin. (The pulp can be used for something else some other time or return it to the potato as a previous reviewer did).

Bake in a 450 degree Fahrenheit oven until cheese is all melted, about 10 to 12 minutes.
