Ever Evolving Food Blog

Hello Everyone! I have had this blog for years now, and as my personal life has changed, so have my tastes and eating habits...for the better!! I am now a fully plant-based eater, so my newer recipes will reflect this lifestyle and way of eating.

All of my old recipes will remain on my food blog, of course, so there will be a mixture of the old and the new for everyone to look through and choose. You can always play around with any recipe out there and make it your own, whether it's plant-based or not. There are always other options!
Thanks SO much for following! Happy Eating!

Homemade Potato Skins

These appetizers are SUPER fast and easy to make.  They would be great for a football party or sleepover for kids.  You could serve them with ranch dressing or salsa, or you could top them with sour cream and green onions or chives.  Two large potatoes can easily serve 4 people, so go from there when deciding how much to make.




Ingredients:
2 large baking potatoes 
1 bag of shredded cheese
bacon bits
salt


Directions:
Slice the potatoes (skin on) in 1/8 inch slices and boil them in a large pot of water for about 8 minutes.  You don't want to boil them for longer than that because they will fall apart.  

Carefully dump the boiled potato slices into a strainer and them lay them out on a paper towel.  Gently dab them with a paper towel to remove excess water.  The drier they are, the crispier they will be when you bake them.

Arrange them in one layer on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray.  Lightly salt them and then sprinkle with cheese and then bacon bits.

Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes. Serve warm and enjoy!
