8 potato skins


  • cooking spray

  • 4 large baking potatoes

  • 3 tablespoons canola oil

  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

  • ¼ teaspoon ground paprika

  • teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 ½ cups shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 8 strips cooked bacon, crumbled

  • ½ cup sour cream

  • 4 stalks green onion, sliced


  1. Preheat the oven to 475 degrees F (245 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet with cooking spray.

  2. Cut potatoes in half lengthwise; scoop out and discard pulp, leaving a 1/4- to 1/2-inch thick skin. Place potatoes on the prepared baking sheet.

  3. Combine oil, Parmesan cheese, salt, garlic powder, paprika, and pepper in a small bowl. Brush mixture over both sides of the potato skins.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until crisp, 30 to 45 minutes; thicker skins can take longer to cook. Sprinkle Cheddar cheese and bacon inside the skins and bake until cheese is melted, about 2 more minutes.

  5. Top with sour cream and green onions. Serve immediately.
