These easy baked potato skins are SO GOOD. They make a great appetizer, a fun side dish with dinner or a simple game day snack. Serve them with your favourite baked potato toppings.
They’re also really simple to make!! Is there anything better than cheesy-bacon-sour-cream-and-potato goodness!? Nope!
This recipe is such a huge time saver. Rather than baking the potatoes, scooping them out and baking them again, you can pretty much cut the baking time in half by cutting the potatoes into slices instead. It’s a bit of a twist on regular potato skins I suppose, but they’re equally delicious!

Cut the potatoes into 1/2 inch thick slices.
Brush both sides of the potato slices with cooking oil, then place them on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt.
