Finally are getting some snow today here in Toronto – it’s supposed to be one of the biggest storms of the year but so far I only see a few flurries outside my window. With all this talk of snowstorms, I don’t think I’ll be going outside my house for a little while…❄
That’s where my DIY Loaded Potato Skins Bar comes in. Since nobody feels like going out to the bar in the cold weather, you can easily bring the party to you with the right theme. I think Make-Your-Own Potato Skins counts as a party – am I right???
I love meals that you can customize to make your own, like pizza, tacos and salads. These potato skins are no different and start with one easy, delicious base that is easy to make ahead of time for easy entertaining.
All you have to do is cook the potatoes ahead of time and scoop out the pulp, then keep them covered in the fridge with the toppings on the side until you’re ready to serve. An easy Friday night dinner, or an easy, fun and engaging party platter!
It’s no secret that I love all my favourite food fully loaded, so I included a variety of different toppings here. The sky is really the limit – I included corn, jalapeños, turkey bacon, green onion, tomatoes and sour cream as part of my DIY Loaded Potato Skins bar, but you can get really crafty and set out some guacamole, or even healthier these skins with some kale or other greens. Sauces aren’t off the table either – I could see these going great with some ranch dressing or chipotle mayo!
Will you be trying these DIY Loaded Potato Skins? If you make them, be sure to tag me on Instagram and Twitter – I want to know what kind of weekend foodie party you’ll be throwing!?
