‘The Pioneer Woman’ gets nostalgic

Drummond makes hearty food that the whole family can enjoy. Her Food Network show is among the most successful in history and continues to grow strong. Part of Drummond’s success is how she connects with her fans on social media. It is on digital platforms like Instagram where the celebrity cook shares her recipes and clips from her show. Drummond recently posted a preview of an upcoming episode where she not only teased her potato skins but got nostalgic over the malls from yesterday.

“On my Food Network show tomorrow/Saturday morning, I’m making football food, and something as simple as a potato skin sends me on a trip down memory lane, where the mall/flirting excursions happened weekly and the good judgment was scarce,” Drummond shared on Instagram. “I miss Spencer’s Gifts! And what was the name of the music store where we bought tapes? I’d give anything for an Orange Julius. My mom got mad at me for a t-shirt I bought at Spencer’s once, btw. In my defense, I was 15 and didn’t understand what that word meant, haha.”

Ree Drummond’s potato skins recipe

The recipe for Drummonds’ potato skins recipe can be found on the Food Network’s website and it’s relatively easy to make. Instructions for the recipe calls for 8 russet potatoes that will end up making roughly 16 potatoes skins. Users will need to preheat the oven to 400 degrees F, wash the potatoes and rub the skin with vegetable oil. The potatoes will need to be placed on a baking sheet to bake in the oven for about 45 minutes.

“Slice the baked potatoes in half lengthwise, then scrape out the inner flesh with a cookie scoop or spoon, leaving a small margin of potato in the skins,” the recipe indicates.

Cooks can add salt and place the skins on the baking sheet to bake for 7 more minutes. Once the latter is completed, the skins would need to be flipped over and baked for another 7 minutes. While the skins are getting baked, one can fry the bacon. Once the skins are ready, you can chop the bacon.

Lastly, you can either dress up the skins with the salsa, sour cream, ranch, and chives or place each ingredient in a bowl and allow guests to help themselves.
