No, they are not potatoes that have been out on a bender! They are a takeoff on loaded potato skins but without having to bake all those big potatoes and then either find a use for the insides or just wasting them.
They make a great appetizer, snack or side dish and you can vary the toppings any way you like. I'm using cheddar, scallions, bacon and sour cream but you could use cooked, crumbled Italian sausage, mozzarella and a little tomato sauce; cooked chopped beef with taco seasoning, Jack cheese, guacamole, salsa and sour cream, etc., etc.
The potatoes can be cooked ahead of time and just baked and topped at the last minute.
