Nested Potato Skins

What You Need


3 c grated russet potatoes

2 beaten egg whites

3/4 c shredded Parmesan

1 1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1 1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp garlic powder


1 1/2 c shredded colby jack cheese

16 oz sour cream

5 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled

1/4 c chopped fresh chives or parsley

Freshly ground pepper


• Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Spray 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray and set aside. Grate potatoes and blot with paper towel to remove excess moisture; don’t rinse.

• Mix together potatoes, egg whites, Parmesan and seasonings. Scoop 1/4-cup of potato mixture into each muffin cup and press firmly onto bottom and up sides.Spray each nest with cooking spray. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

• Remove from oven and run an off set spatula or knife carefully around edges to loosen. Cool in pan for 5 minutes before removing. To assemble, sprinkle each nest with shredded colby jack cheese, pipe in sour cream, sprinkle with bacon and garnish with chopped chives.

Serve warm.

Note: As a time saver, frozen hash browns, thawed, may be used.
