Who’s ready for some football?!  I love football season, not only for the games, but for the FOOD!  Party food and snacks are some of the best foods around, and I never get tired of eating them 🙂

One of my favorites is loaded potato skins… I order them as an appetizer in just about every restaurant I can… they’re just so GOOD.  But these loaded BBQ potato skins… well they’re even better!

Cheesy, crispy, loaded with flavor and really easy to make!  Doesn’t that sound like the perfect snack?

Now of course, if you have some leftover shredded barbeque meat, by all means, use that.  But if you’re like me, and you don’t have any leftovers, and have no desire to wait 4+ hours for some barbeque… Lloyd’s Meats are a fantastic alternative!  Lloyd’s Barbeque Tubs come in a bunch of flavors… beef, chicken, pork, in just about any sauce you’d like.  You can be having amazing tasting barbeque in about 5 minutes.  That’s hard to beat!

Ingredients
  • 6 russet potatoes scrubbed clean
  • 1 container Lloyd's Original Shredded Beef Barbeque
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • 2 jalapenos sliced
  • 3 scallions chopped
  • 1/2 red onion chopped
  • Handful of fresh cilantro roughly chopped
  • 1 cup stick butter melted, 1/2
  • Olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Wash potatoes, dry, pierce with a fork and rub with olive oil.
  2. Place potatoes on a foil lined baking sheet and bake for about 50 minutes - 1 hour.
  3. Remove to cooling rack until cool enough to handle.
  4. Preheat oven broiler.
  5. Slice potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop out the flesh of the potato, keeping a 1/4-1/2 inch border around the outside of the potato.
  6. Brush the inside of the potato with melted butter and season well with salt and pepper.
  7. Flip over potatoes, so they are cut-side down, and brush potato skin with melted butter and season with salt and pepper.
  8. Broil potatoes, still cut-side down, for 2-3 minutes, or until skin is crisping up.
  9. Flip potatoes over and broil another 2-3 minutes.
  10. Sprinkle shredded cheese over the inside of potatoes, broil about 4 minutes.
  11. Heat up Lloyd's barbeque meat (via directions on packaging), and fill potatoes with barbeque.
  12. Top with sliced jalapenos, chopped scallions, chopped red onion, sprinkle with additional shredded cheese, and chopped cilantro.
Recipe Notes

** for a quicker version, instead of baking potatoes, microwave potatoes (3 at a time) for about 9-12 minutes.
** melted bacon grease can be substituted for the melted butter.
** for a chipotle kick, either use Lloyd's Chipotle Beef Barbeque, or use the original flavor and add some chipotle in adobo

  11. Great vehicle for BBQ, chili would also be good. Loved the combination of the crispy potato with a rich sauce. Yum. Thanks for bringing them to FF.

  12. Wow! I haven’t made potato skins in forever, but you’ve got me wanting to make these!! Yum!

  13. I would suffer through a football game to eat a few of these. I didn’t get the football gene. But that jalapeno is calling me! Thanks for linking up at #SaucySaturdays.

  14. I just love all the colors in this dish, and you’re pictures are just beautiful. The flavor combinations sounds perfect for fall or football season. I must admit that I love watching a football game because I grew up with it, but the brain injuries from football also drive me insane. It’s kind of a dilemma, but the food… well, I have no problem with the food! Happy FF, and have a wonderful weekend. 😀
