Lazy Girl Potato Skins

I love potato skins but sometimes I just don’t feel like going through all that effort. So this method is perfect for getting that potato skin taste with much less work. Plus, it works perfectly as either an appetizer or a side dish.

Lazy Girl Potato Skins

  • 3 T. vegetable oil
  • 3 T. butter or margarine
  • 6 russet potatoes, cubed
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Shredded cheese
  • Optional toppings: cooked bacon, green onions, sour cream, chili, etc.

1. In a large, deep-sided skillet, heat oil and butter or margarine. Add potatoes, season to taste with salt and pepper, and cook for 5-7 minutes, then stir and flip. Continue letting the potatoes crisp and flipping and rotating every 5 minutes or so, until they are mostly all browned.
2. Transfer to a casserole dish, top with shredded cheese, and broil just until cheese melts. Then top with any desired optional toppings and enjoy!Stop by The Grocery Cart Challenge for more recipes.
