Fully Loaded Potato Skin Burgers Are Your Next Healthy Option

Print Recipe

The baked potato has been around for quite a while, same with hamburgers. For some reason I’ve never thought to put these two things together! Until right now!

Just think of a perfect potato skin, with gooey cheese, salty bacon, sour cream and fancify it with some chopped chives! Now slap a juicy beef burger in the middle and you've got the latest and greatest bar snack ever created! Cut out the burger and have a gluten-free healthy option!

Ingredients:

  • 4 Yukon gold potatoes
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 1/2 cups Cheddar cheese (shredded)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Season potatoes with salt and pepper and brush with olive oil. Bake until tender, 1 hour. Raise oven temperature to 450º.
  2. Let potatoes cool completely, then halve lengthwise and scoop out potatoes, leaving 1/4" potato on all sides.
  3. Place potato skins facedown. Bake until golden, 10 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, shape ground beef into burgers to fit inside hollowed out potato. Season with salt and pepper and cook until medium, 5 minutes per side.
  5. Flip and fill 1 half of the potato skins with bacon and cheese. Return to oven until cheese is melty, 5 minutes.
  6. Fill the other half of the skins with sour cream and chives, then top one with a cooked burger and another potato skin.
