  • Step 1
    Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place the bacon strips into a cold pan, and turn heat to medium. Cook until the fat has rendered into the pan and the bacon is crisp, turning as needed. Remove bacon to paper towels to drain, and reserve 2 tablespoons of the bacon fat. If you do not have enough for 2 tablespoons, supplement (or substitute entirely) with olive oil. Crumble bacon and set aside.
  • Step 2
    Meanwhile, peel the potatoes, making sure to have about 1/8-inch of potato flesh on each piece in addition to the peel. Set aside and cook potatoes separately as desired.
  • Step 3
    Spray a sheet pan with cooking spray or rub with oil. In a bowl, drizzle the potato skins with the bacon fat or oil and toss with the dressing mix until evenly coated. Spread out in an even layer on the baking sheet. Roast in the oven for about 20 minutes, tossing once or twice to prevent sticking, until crisp and browned. Sprinkle with crumbled bacon and serve with Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Dressing for dipping.
  • For safe meat preparation, reference the USDA website.
    For dips, make and enjoy your dip creation. Then, refrigerate within 2 hours or discard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So delicious! Loved the flavor and thought the potatoes came out crispy. I use convection bake to even more crispier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good What a great way to use potatoes. Really easy. Sorry, but I used HVR Ranch with Bacon, for dipping. Of course, any HVR Ranch would have done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavenly! These are by far my favorite way to eat potatoes now lol. My kids are obsessed with potato skins, so when I came across this recipe on HVR and saw it was their new revamped "take" on classic potato skins, and how they combined it with the word "chips"- i knew my kids would be sold! This was a few years back now and my kids haven't looked back since! They absolutely love when I make them this way. We love to add fresh chives, shredded cheese and sometimes sour cream too. Yum, they are so soooo good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from pot skin/chips Oh my!! I LOVE, LOVE this recipe. First of all, it's super easy to prepare! I added chives along with the crispy bacon. It was a cross between a potato chip and potato skin. It really depends on how thick you make your skins.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy recipe! I love this recipe, except I like to use onions instead of bacon and olive oil instead of bacon grease! It's a wonderful recipe, do not be afraid to experiment!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sounding recipe I would probably make this recipe but without the bacon. I am guessing you cut off most of the peel but not all of it in Step 2
Date published: 2018-10-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Family favorite My family absolutely loves this! And everytime I make it there is hardly any left a lot of the times there are none left and they ask for it a lot! It’s super easy to make that will go good with pretty much anything!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love potato skins I haven't made this yet but I will just as soon as I find out that if in step 2, You mean First peel the potato or do you mean first slice the potato. It will be difficult to leave the peel on while they bake, if you peel it first..What say you?
