makes 6 servings

Run The Option

Experiment with your favorite cheese to change the flavor. Gouda, Pepper Jack & Swiss would make fine substitutions.

1 {1-oz} package Ranch salad dressing mix
1 {16-oz} container sour cream
6 {7-oz} russet potatoes
1 Tbsp oil
Kosher salt & freshly ground pepper
1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1 Tbsp Sriracha
6 bacon slices, cooked & crumbled
4 small scallions, sliced

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Combine the dressing mix & the sour cream in a small bowl. Cover & chill 1 hour. Pierce the potatoes with a fork & place on a half sheet pan. Bake 1 hour & 15 minutes or until fork tender. Remove from the oven. Let stand 15 minutes.

Slice the potatoes in half. Remove the pulp with a spoon leaving a 1/4-inch thick shell on the skins. Place the pulp in a medium bowl. Set aside. Place the skins on a lightly greased, foil-lined half sheet pan. Brush both sides of the skins with oil. Sprinkle with salt & pepper. Bake the potato skins, pulp side up, 20 minutes. Sprinkle the inside of the skins with cheese & return to the oven. Bake 10 minutes or until the cheese melts. Meanwhile, mash the potato pulp with 3/4 cup of the Ranch mixture. Reserve & refrigerate the mashed potatoes for a supper side dish. Stir the Sriracha into the remaining 1 cup Ranch mixture. Sprinkle the skins with the bacon & the scallions. Serve with the spicy Ranch.

The Extra Point

The mashed potatoes will yield approximately 3 cups. Microwave in a glass bowl on HIGH until hot. Pair with grilled steak or chicken & a green salad to complete the pass for a tasty supper.

How To Prep Spuds For Crispy Skins

 A little extra oven time helps get the skins good & crisp. Baking them for a longer period of time without flipping halfway through holds the oven heat better. It also gives the potato edges a chance to get nice & crusty. Regardless, the bottom portion will be crisp as well.

Once the potato pulp has been removed, brush the inside & outside of the skins with oil using a pastry brush. Sprinkle with a little kosher salt & pepper for added flavor then line them up on a lightly greased foil-lined half sheet pan. The foil comes into play at this point in the recipe so that when the cheese is added it will not stick to the sheet pan. You’ll be able to peel it from the foil & have a snacky ready for you.
