Stuffed Potato Skins

Some people serve these stuffed potato skins at their get-togethers and parties, but with only 55 caleries per wedge, some people keep them all to themselves as a snack. We don't judge.

  • Yield: 16 servings (serving size: 1 potato skin and 1 teaspoon dressing)


  • 4 none (8-ounce) baking potatoes
  • 3 none slices precooked bacon (such as Armour Ready Crisp)
  • none Butter-flavored cooking spray
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) preshredded reduced-fat colby-Jack cheese
  • 1/3 cup refrigerated light ranch dressing


Preheat oven to 425°.

Pierce potatoes with a fork (do not wrap in foil). Bake potatoes at 425° for 1 hour or until tender. Cool potatoes 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat bacon slices according to package directions until crisp; crumble bacon. Set aside.

Cut potatoes lengthwise into 4 wedges. Scoop out as much potato pulp as possible without tearing potato skins. Reserve potato pulp for another use.

Arrange potato skins on a foil-lined baking sheet. Coat both sides of potato skins with cooking spray; sprinkle evenly with pepper and salt. Bake at 425° for 13 minutes or until lightly browned. Sprinkle skins evenly with bacon and cheese; bake an additional 3 minutes or until cheese melts. Serve immediately with dressing.
