Deep Fried Loaded Potato Skin Appetizer


One of my all time favorite appetizers!

The skins are loaded with bacon, sour cream and a medley of cheddar blended cheeses.
After they are fried, they are baked in the oven then smoothered in cheese immediately when taken out of the oven and the heat melts the cheese perfectly.
 They take about ten to twelve minutes to fry till golden.



You will need about a 5lb bag of scrubbed potatoes, sliced thick, about 1/2 inch.
1 quart of oil
2 cups of fiesta blend cheese shredded
1/2 cup crumbled bacon
1 container of sour cream
Fry sliced potatoes in several batches, in heated hot oil till brown, around 10 minutes.
Put into baking dish.
Bake in a 400 degree oven for 10 minutes, remove from oven top with shredded cheese and allow cheese to melt around five minutes.
Garnish with bacon crumbles and sour cream.
**Optional toppings, jalapeno peppers, black olives, chopped tomato.
