These potato skins are customizable

Yeh’s potato skins are customizable dishes. They can either be served plain with cheese and sour cream or amped up as in Yeh’s recipe.

This wildly versatile side or appetizer can also be served as part of a potato skins bar. Guests can add their toppings and design their own original taste sensations.

However, the ingredients for the Girl Meets Farm version of the recipe have a crunchy twist.

These include potatoes, cheddar, provolone cheeses, scallions, black olives, sour cream, sriracha, and chicken skins.

How to make Molly Yeh’s loaded potato skins


‘Girl Meets Farm’: Molly Yeh’s Diner-Style Patty Melt Is if a ‘Burger Married a Grilled Cheese’

First, preheat your oven to 400 degrees to create this Girl Meets Farm masterpiece.

Scrub the dirt off the spuds and poke holes in them with a fork before placing them on a foil-lined baking sheet and cooking for at least one hour or until potatoes are tender.

Take the chicken skins and sprinkle with salt and pepper—place in a dry skillet. The chicken skin has a lot of fat in it, so no extra oil is needed. Reserve the fat for a delicious end to Yeh’s potato skins recipe.

Fry as you would bacon until crisp. Drain on paper towels. Break into pieces.

Cut potatoes in half and gently scoop out the middles. Lay with the centers facing upward on a lined baking sheet. Brush with reserved chicken grease. Bake until light brown.

In a separate bowl, combine cheese, olives, and scallions. Place the mixture into the center of the potato shell and broil until cheese melts.

Top with fried chicken skins, sour cream, and sriracha.
