Pimiento cheese is a Southern classic eaten with crackers, on burgers and in this case, topped on potato skins. Creamy, savory and extra cheesy, this starter will quickly become a family favorite for sports game-watching, special occasions or even afternoon snack time. Want to add a little protein and make this appetizer perfect for lunch? Cook up some bacon and crumble it on top. Pulled pork or chicken also make tasty additions.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a small bowl, combine butter, salt, pepper and garlic powder.
  2. Cut completely cooled baked potatoes in half and scoop out centers, leaving 1/4-inch rim of potato still inside the skin. Coat each piece with butter and herb mixture.
  3. Bake skins face down on baking sheet for 10 minutes. Flip and bake for another 10. Top with cold pimiento cheese spread and garnish with chives right before serving.
