Cheeseburger Potato Skins

60 minutes


serves 10

3 of my favorite game day comfort foods are potato skins, cheeseburgers and French fries. So now, I present to you a dish that combines all of these into one! Victory for team snacks!!

What I did here is I made a cheeseburger “dip” and stuffed it inside some crispy Idaho potato skins. I added extra cheddar cheese, ketchup, mustard, mayo and a sprinkle of scallions to top it off. The beauty of this recipe is you can tone it up or down, depending on what you’re craving the most. Craving bacon cheddar potato skins, but also want a burger? No problem. Add extra cheese and bacon onto your cheeseburger potato skins. Top with a little sour cream too, while you’re at it.

This recipe is easy. The only annoying part is waiting for the potatoes to bake, but you can prep your cheeseburger dip while that’s happening. Yay for multitasking and yay for indulgent game day foods. I also want to note that this can be made completely vegan. Swap the ground beef for Impossible ground meat, and use a vegan cheese. Not my style, but hey, you can make these your style.

While the potatoes are baking, prepare the cheeseburger dip. The first step is to combine 1 tbsp mayo, 2 tbsp Worcestershire, 1 tbsp ketchup and 1 tbsp yellow mustard in a bowl. Mix until thoroughly combined.

Turn the heat to medium low and add 3 oz. of cream cheese and 3 cups of cheddar cheese. Mix until thoroughly combined and cheesy. Turn the heat off and cover the pan with a lid, so the mixture stays warm.

Mix finely chopped pickles into the cheeseburger to your liking. When the potatoes are done, remove them from the heat and let them sit until they are warm to touch.

Slice the potatoes lengthwise and scoop out as much flesh as you can. We want these to be potato skins and have as little "mashed potato" in there as possible. The thinner the better.

Fill the bottom of the potato with cheddar cheese (I used about 1/2 cup total.) Next, generously scoop the cheeseburger mixture on top of the cheese.

Sprinkle the rest of the cheddar cheese on top. Rub a little more olive oil on the outside of the potato skin (do not coat the dip mixture, just the potato.) Bake the potato skins for another 15 minutes if you are serving immediately. If you are pre-making these, cover them and put them in the fridge. Bake for 15 minutes right before serving, then follow the next step. Top with some ketchup (mayo and mustard are also welcome) and a generous sprinkle of scallions. Serve immediately.
