I cannot wait for the cooler weather! Fall is my absolute favorite season and I love everything about it. From boots and jackets to crisp air and leaves changing color. And I also associate fall with some great food! These Philly Cheesesteak Potato Skins will be making some appearances on our football Sunday table!

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!

Make the potato skin shells in advance for a quick and easy assembly! I like to throw them in a container and refrigerate them for when I am ready to finish them off. That way you can have these Philly Cheesesteak Potato Skins ready to go in no time!
To make the Philly Cheesesteak Potato Skins, sautee the onion and bell pepper in a large skillet until they are just translucent. (Some people argue that peppers are not part of a traditional cheesesteak, so skip them if you wish but I love them!)
Then add the sliced beef and cook until it is no longer pink.
Fill up the potato skin shells with the steak mixture and top with some pieces of provolone cheese. You can go cheese crazy if you want and put some in the bottom of the skins as well! Then bake them off for about 12 minutes until the cheese is softened.
