Cheeseburger Potato Skins
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.
|5 Idaho potatoes|
|1 white onion|
|3 garlic cloves|
|1 1/2tsp salt|
|1tsp black pepper|
|1tsp garlic powder|
|olive oil, for coating potatoes and seasoning pan|
|1lb ground beef|
|1tbsp yellow mustard|
|3oz. cream cheese|
|4cups cheddar cheese|
|4 dill pickles, finely chopped|
|1/2cup scallions, thinly sliced|
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Rinse and scrub the potatoes.
In a bowl, combine 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp salt and 1 tsp black pepper. Mix until thoroughly incorporated.
Coat the potatoes in olive oil, on all sides. Sprinkle half of the garlic salt mixture onto the potatoes, covering all sides. Save the other half for the ground beef.
Line the potatoes up on a sheet pan and bake for 45 minutes.
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.
Pour the condiment mixture onto the ground beef. Add the rest of the garlic salt mixture. Mix the mixtures into the ground beef until the ingredients are thoroughly blended into the meat.
Over medium high heat, season a skillet with olive oil.
