Why I love these BBQ Veggie Pulled Pork Potato Skins

I have found a new product that I absolutely love! Most of my readers know that I grew up with a mom who was vegetarian and a dad who was not. Therefore, I had the best of both worlds!

Now, both parents eat vegetarian and still enjoy products like the MorningStar Farms® Grillers Original Burger so I couldn’t wait to try the MorningStar Farms® Veggie Pulled Pork to share with Dad for Father’s Day!

Pulled Pork Potato Skin FAQ’s

Do I have to pre-cook the potatoes for potato skins?

Yes, for this recipe, you start with a fully cooked potato. After it has baked and cooled, you will scoop most of the pulp from the inside leaving just enough potato inside the skin to keep it sturdy.

Why do you pre-bake the potato skins without the pulled pork?

Pre-baking the potato skins before adding the filling dries it out more, making it a sturdier serving vessel.

Can I freeze these BBQ Veggie Pulled Pork Potato Skins?

These can be frozen up to 2-3 months. Just remove from freezer and place directly in a 350 oven and reheat until warmed through.

Easy to make appetizer or main dish recipe!

This vegetarian pulled pork potato skins recipe couldn’t be any easier! As a matter of fact, you could make extra baked potatoes for dinner one night and have leftovers ready to make these BBQ Veggie Pulled Pork Potato Skins for the next day!

I recommend browning the potato skins in the oven or on the grill. Doing so makes your potato skin a little crispier and firmer. Making it a sturdy vessel for your veggie pulled pork.

If using the grill, you will want to put them hollow side down. Once the potato skin shells are browned, they are ready to be stuffed with the veggie pulled pork.

Next, top with cheese and jalapeno and continue cooking (grill or oven) for 15 minutes. Because I don’t like to take chances, I recommend using a small cookie sheet tray in on the grill also. This will aid in ensuring any cheese doesn’t drip down into the flame

After about 15 minute in the oven or on the grill, these potato skins are ready to feed the hungriest of dads!
