Potato skins – meet your match! There’s a new bite in town!
These Loaded Twice Baked Potatoes are a great snack for game day! Filled with cheese and bacon, it will be sure to please your hungry football fans!
They were for the most part pretty easy to make. The hardest part was scooping out the inside of the potatoes without breaking through the skin. But it worked & they tasted great. These can even be prepared ahead of time to make you Super Bowl Sunday less stressful!

Mini Loaded Twice Baked Potatoes
- 1 bag 28 ounces mini potatoes - I used white delights
- 1 tablespoon butter flavored olive oil
- salt & pepper to season
- 2 slices bacon cooked crisp & crumbled
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- a large handful thinly cut green onions
- 1/3 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese
- Preheat oven to 400ºF. Line a baking sheet with foil for easy cleanup.
- Toss the potatoes in olive oil and a sprinkling of salt and pepper and bake for 20 to 25 minutes; until the potatoes can be easily pierced with a tooth pick. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
- With a small knife cut off the top 1/4 of each potato, discarding the top. Then using a small spoon (I used my 1/4 teaspoon measuring spoon) scoop out the inside of the potato, making sure to the keep skin intact, placing potato flesh into a small bowl. Using a fork or a masher, combine the potato with the bacon, sour cream, green onions & cheese. Once combined, place the mashed potato mixture into a Ziplock bag and cut off the tip of the bag. Pipe the potato mixture into the potato skins, making sure mixture is slightly mounded at the top. Place potatoes back on the baking dish.
- Bake the potatoes at 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes until the tops are slightly browned and potatoes are heated through. Serve immediately or at room temperature.
