Potato skins always reminds me of going to Fridays or Chili’s back in the day. You always wanted an appetizer and normally that was the one that looked so delicious. Potato skins are delicious, but also can come with some added calories.

Typically Phillip and I try to make recipes with our health in mind. Eat right, exercise, and laugh a lot is our recipe for staying physically and mentally healthy. But every once an a while we indulge a bit and carbo load. This week we decided to make cheesy, creamy, bacon-filled, potato skins. Yes, we did also make zucchini skins to try to mix and match but we definitely ate all the potato skins in one sitting. Do you really blame us?

From our kitchen to yours, cheers!
