Cheesy Bacon & Pesto Potato Skins

Not your average potato skins! These skins are loaded with spinach, pesto, cheese, and yes... Moink uncured smoked bacon!


  • 6 Slices Moink Smoked Uncured Bacon

  • 3 Russet Potatoes

  • 1 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • 1 1/2 Tsp. Sea Salt

  • 1 1/2 Tsp. Black Pepper

  • 1 C. Chopped Fresh Baby Spinach

  • 1/3 C. Light Pesto

  • 1/3 C. Shredded Italian Cheese Blend


  1. Cook the Moink Uncured Smoked Bacon via your favorite method until done and crisp. Set aside to cool and crumble.

  2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. and line a baking sheet with foil or a silicone baking mat for easy clean up.

  3. Wash the potatoes well and pierce all over with a fork before placing into a large bowl.

  4. Add the 1 Tbsp. olive oil. 1 1/2 Tsp. salt, and 1 1/2 pepper to the bowl with the potatoes and toss to coat.

  5. Transfer the potatoes to the prepared baking sheet and bake for about 45 minutes or until the potatoes are fork tender.

  6. Once done, remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly before cutting each potato in half. Scoop out the middles of the potatoes to leave about 1/4” thick skin.

  7. Fill the center of the potatoes with the 1 C. chopped spinach divided evenly.

  8. Spoon about 1 Tbsp. of the light pesto into the potatoes, followed by about 1 Tbsp. of the cheese each, and the crumbled bacon.

  9. Place the skins into the oven to bake again, this time for about 5-10 minutes or until the cheese has melted.

  10. Once done, remove from the oven and serve right away along with more cooked Moink meats!
