Smashed Potato Skins

This is another recipe from Rachael Ray’s BOB cookbook. I served these with the sloppy hot wing joes and found that they are the perfect side dish!


2 1/3 lb. small red potatoes-I used baby yukon golds

1 cup buttermilk

6 slices bacon

1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

1/4 cup chives

salt and pepper


Preheat oven to 350. Arrange bacon slices on slotted broiler pan and bake 10-15 mins or until crispy. Let cool and crumble. Place potatoes in med. pot. Cover with water and boil until fork tender.  Drain and return to hot pot. Add in buttermilk, cheese, chives, crumbled bacon, and salt and pepper. Using potato masher, smash until you reach desired consistency.
