Your will have many fans when you serve up these Black and Blue Potato Skins on Game Day!
Early in the day ( or even the night before) you can wash up a dozen medium size Idaho Potatoes. Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit.
Prepare the toppings. If you haven’t tried these Farmstead Cheeses you are in for a treat! The Lapsang Black Tea is my favorite!
Grate up the Black Tea Cheese…
Crumble up the Blue cheese.
The Butcher asked me to add some Sharp Cheddar…
Make sure that the potatoes are scrubbed really clean, since the skin is the star of this dish. Using a fork, press several holes into the skin of each potato. Rub the potatoes with olive oil and wrap individually in foil. Place on a nice size baking tray and bake in the oven for 60 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare the bacon. This Hickory Smoked Bacon is a favorite amongst the boys. It comes to R&S straight from Oscar’s Smoke House Upstate NY….
I used an entire package…because I knew the boys would be sneaking a few pieces before it made its way on to the potatoes.
The easiest way to cook up the bacon is to slice it up into one inch pieces.
Potato skins are a great appetizer, but when you cook up the pre-made frozen variety, you can never be quite sure what you are eating. Bake up these fresh potato skins, and you will be happy to see your family inhale them! 626 more words

Is it really January, or have I been secretly teleported to April. The weather here is telling me the latter. The trees in the yard are even confused as the early buds are being coerced out almost to full bloom. 232 more words
