Triple Baked Stuffed Potato Skins

print recipe

Triple-baked… yes you heard correctly – TRIPLE-BAKED stuffed potato skins. Lathered in cheese, bacon and chives…is this what heaven is?

I’d happily be lathered in this concoction tbh because what more does a gal want?! Especially one who used to be obsessed with visiting TGI Fridays purely for the potato skins. This really encouraged and kick-started my love for spuds, so I can’t thank them enough for that. And hopefully you will enjoy these little beauties just as much as I do. Plus, anything that is triple baked is automatically so much better, despite the added effort.

For more stuffed spud inspo and another excuse to fill more potatoes with lots of cheese and bacon, here’s my double stuffed bacon jacket to go for next. If you just want a load of spud recipes, then OMG you have come to the right place. This website is predominantly beige and I’m really ok with that.
