Why I love these BBQ Veggie Pulled Pork Potato Skins

Pulled Pork Potato Skin FAQ's
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.
Pre-baking the potato skins before adding the filling dries it out more, making it a sturdier serving vessel.
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!
Made with only 5 ingredients, these are easy and quick to throw together! Just 3 minutes in the microwave and the Veggie Pulled Pork is ready to toss with your favorite BBQ Sauce.
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!
