Ready for the Super-Bowl party, lets try something different this year , try something different , freshen it up with a bit by using a slab of roasted potato instead of chips .
8 medium potatoes
2 tablespoons vegetable oil , divided
2 large yellow onions , diced
kosher salt and ground black pepper
8 ounces loose sausage meat , cooked and crumbled
1/2 cup sour cream
cloves garlic , minced
8 slices cooked bacon , crumbled
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 scallions , sliced
1 . Heat the oven to 400*F . Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil , then coat with cooking spray .
2 . Poke the potatoes all over with a folk . Microwave on high until tender , about 1o to 12 minutes , depending on the wattage of your microwave . Allow to cool until easily handled .
3 . Meanwhile , heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a medium skillet over medium heat . Add the onions and cook until softened and browned , 15 to 18 minutes .
4 . When the potatoes are cook enough to handle , cut them in half . Scoop out and reserve the insides , leaving a 1/4-inch thick wall of potato flesh on the side of the skin .
5 . Arrange the halves skin down on the prepared baking sheet . Brush the potatoes with the remaining tablespoon of oil . Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper , then bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until crisp and brown .
6 . Meanwhile , in a medium bowl , stir together the reserved potato flesh and the sausage . Season with salt and pepper , if needed . In a small bowl , stir together the sour cream and garlic . Set aside .
7 . Once the potato skins have baked , start laying them . Spoon a bit of the caramelized onions into the bottom of each shell . Top with sausage-potato mixture . This should mostly fill the shell . Sprinkle crumbled bacon over the potatoes , followed by cheese .
8 . Bake another 10 minutes . Top with a dollop of garlic sour cream and sprinkle with the scallions . Serve immediately .
