Servings 24 potato skins
- 6 leftover baked potatoes
- olive oil for brushing
- 2 cups leftover pulled pork like this or this or storebought
- 3/4 cup -at least- of your favourite barbecue sauce
Preheat oven to 425°F.
Halve the leftover baked potatoes at the midsection of the potato and then halve those again lengthwise so you have quartered potatoes. Use a spoon to scoop away the insides of the potato to leave just about 1/8- to 1/4-inch thickness of potato in the skins. Brush the scooped surfaces generously with olive oil and sprinkle lightly with salt. Lay on a baking sheet, scooped sides up and bake until the top edges are golden brown and the potato has started to crisp up.
Divide the pork evenly between the potato shells, piling the pork into the scooped wells. Drizzle at least 1-2 teaspoons of barbecue sauce over the pork then return the pan to the oven until the pork and barbecue sauce are heated through, about 6 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and top each potato skin with at least 1 tablespoon of shredded cheese, or more to taste. Return the pan to the oven and bake just until the cheese is melted and hot.
Remove the pan from the oven and carefully transfer the potato skins to a serving plate. Serve hot.
