Stuffed Potato Skins: The Dairy Free Delight You've Been Craving


When it comes to comfort food, few dishes can compete with the heavenly indulgence of stuffed potato skins. Crispy on the outside, creamy on the inside, and bursting with mouthwatering flavors – it's a classic for a reason. But what if you're following a dairy-free lifestyle or have dietary restrictions? Fear not, because we've crafted a recipe that's sure to satisfy even the most discerning taste buds: Dairy-Free Baked Stuffed Potato Skins.


**The Crispy Canvas: Baking the Perfect Potato Skin**


To create the ideal potato skin, we start with baking the perfect potato. Choose your favorite type of potato – Russet, Yukon Gold, or even sweet potatoes for a twist – and give them a thorough wash. Pierce them with a fork a few times, brush with a bit of oil, and bake AT 400 degrees until the skin is crisp and the flesh is tender. This initial baking stage sets the stage for the crispy texture we all love.



**Scoop and Stuff: Making the Filling**


Once your potatoes are perfectly baked, and cooled enough you can handle them, it's time to slice in half the long way, scoop out the flesh, leaving a thin layer of potato attached to the skin. Those scooped-out potato bits go into a bowl to become our filling. Brush the skins with a bit of oil and put them back in that 400 degree oven while we make the filling.


For the filling, we're keeping it dairy-free by using a creamy alternative. Prepare mashed potatoes using your scooped-out potato flesh, oat milk, vegan butter, garlic and pepper. Here's where it gets good- mix in shredded chicken (you can opt for a vegan substitute if you prefer or omit altogether). After I cook up a few chicken breasts I put them in the ninja until its fine. Add it right to the mixture.



**Bake Again for Bliss: Bringing it All Together**


Now comes the fun part – stuffing those hollowed-out potato skins with your dairy-free mashed potato and chicken mixture. Be generous with the filling, piling it high for that ultimate comfort food experience.


Once your skins are stuffed to satisfaction, they go back into the oven for 20 minutes. This bake ensures that everything is heated through, and the flavors meld together beautifully.


**The Tantalizing Toppings: Dairy-Free and Delicious**


To add the finishing touches, top your stuffed potato skins with a dollop of vegan sour cream for that classic tangy kick(Kite Hill is my go to). Don't forget the chopped chives for a burst of freshness and color.


If you're in the mood for an extra layer of flavor, consider adding vegan or regular bacon bits on top. Crispy, smoky, and oh-so-delicious, they'll take your stuffed potato skins to the next level.




The result? A plate full of dairy-free baked stuffed potato skins that are so filling and so delicious, you won't believe they're entirely dairy-free. Each bite is a harmonious blend of crispy skin, creamy filling, and zesty toppings – a comfort food experience that leaves your taste buds delighted and your belly happily full.


So, whether you're a committed dairy-free enthusiast, accommodating dietary preferences, or simply looking for a tasty twist on a classic, these baked stuffed potato skins are sure to please. Give them a try, and prepare to be amazed by the dairy-free delight they bring to your table.
