Aren’t potato skins some of the best snacks for watching sports? They are such a classic appetizer and perfect for those homegating parties when entertaining family and friends. And potato-anything is a winner in my book, just like these Bacon and Bourbon Blue Cheese Potato Skins!
The Bourbon Blue Cheese Sauce is the foundation of these potato skins. This sauce started as a steak topper but I have been using it on everything! And all of the potato skin variations have become rather popular around here, so I knew I had to combine the two in one amazing dish! Each year for the Super Bowl, I get input for what people want me to bring. And something tells me that this year, potato skins will be on that list.
You can find detailed instructions on how to make the best potato skin shells here! It is my favorite technique as I found using baked potatoes were just too soft and difficult to work with. Plus my technique above is so much faster! The topping possibilities are endless! Now that I have a recipe for perfect potato skins, it is somewhat dangerous because they are so good!
For a fast and easy appetizer, make the Bourbon Blue Cheese Sauce and the Potato Skin Shells in advance. Then you will be able to make these Bacon and Bourbon Blue Cheese Potato Skins in less than 20 minutes! I am a big fan of making as much as I can in advance, because time always seems to fly when you are busy!
