Let’s be honest: I shouldn’t even write the rest of this post.
I should just add the photos, write the easy recipe and leave it at that.. the pictures can talk for themselves!

On the other hand, who else am I gonna tell about all the fabulous dinner parties I’m making these for!?

Easy Vegan Stuffed Potato Skins When Ain’t Nobody Got Time!

Okay, hear me out. You’re probably looking at the prep time of this recipe and thinking “come on, Nick. 1+ hours is not a quick or easy recipe”. You’ve got it all wrong, baby!

I baked my potatoes in the oven (since I try to avoid microwaves), but if you’re cool nuking it, go ahead! This will shave off approximately 50 minutes of your precious time.. so keep that in mind!

As far as ease of making goes, nothing gets easier!
I’ll break the process down for you:

  • Bake the potatoes
  • Cut the potatoes
  • Scoop the potatoes
  • Mix it all together
  • Scoop it back
  • Bake again to crisp sh*t up!

Easy enough, right!?

Loaded Potato Skins, the King of Party Food!

Remember I mentioned dinner parties!? YAAAAAAAAAS!

The first time I made these babes was for our Super Bowl party!
What? You’re surprised I watch football? Nahhh, I was there for the Lady Gaga concert!
(She killed it, by the way!)

Next up on our dinner-party-to-do-list is the Season 9 premier of RuPaul’s Drag Race!
C’mon, Season 9, let’s get sickening!

If you haven’t seen the show yet, just know that it’s pretty much the Gay Olympics. That being said, it’s a tradition to make the premier episode extra fun by throwing a giant viewing party.. and what’s the best thing about viewing parties?
Hint: It’s the food!!

The Best Part of These Vegan Stuffed Potato Skins? The Customizability!

cut potatoesSo, I’m a huge fan of Nutritional Yeast and Sriracha.. but what if you’re not? Why not switch things up?

That’s the beauty of the recipe! I see the baked potatoes as a blank canvas, ready to add your favorite flavor combinations.. Experiment with spice levels, add some veggie bacon, even top it off with chocolate! (Too far??)

Long story short, have fun with the recipe! I’ve changed it hundreds of times, but this is my favorite version to date!
