|Delicious Smoky Potato Skins|
Smoky Potato Skins
10 potato skin halves, scooped out with some of the flesh left on the skin
4 T butter, melted
2-3 T crushed red pepper
½ of ring of polish smoked sausage chopped into small pieces
1 heirloom tomato, chopped into small pieces
3 green onions, chopped into small pieces
1 – 2 c of shredded cheese (your choice – I use pepper jack if I want a good kick or cojack for a mild flavor)
Brush the scooped out potato skins in and out with the melted butter. Sprinkle each piece with crushed red pepper. Place on a baking sheet, prepared with Pam and bake in a preheated oven (375 degrees) for 10 minutes or until crispy.
While the skins are baking, put 1 T butter in a sauté pan and melt. Add the smoked sausage and sauté until crispy on the outside.
Remove the skins from the oven.
While still warm, place the cheese and smoked sausage into the shells. Return to the oven for an additional 7-10 minutes, until cheese is melted and bubbly. Remove.
Cool slightly, then add your sour cream, tomatoes, guacamole and black olives as toppings. You can add a dash of tomatilla salsa if you like or hot sauce to taste. What ever your kick!
