I’m sneaking one more appetizer in here before the Super Bowl :) I meant to share these little bites of pure pleasure a few weeks ago, buuut we all know I’m not the most organized person ever, sooo…I’m sharing them today!

One of my very, very favorite sandwiches of all time is the Philly Cheesesteak or Philly Cheese Steak (as Google seems to prefer…)  The super tender meat with all that melted cheese is pure bliss.  These potato skins are a play on this iconic sandwich, incorporating all of the flavors into one tasty bite.

While these Philly Cheese Steak Potato Skins may look like they’re all appetizer, they can easily be a fun weeknight dinner.  A full-size Philly Cheese Steak can appear a little daunting to kids.  Serving up the same flavor profile in a tasty potato skin package is perfect for small bites and small hands while still delivering BIG flavor.

When you’re at the store picking out your potatoes, try to pick out ones as close in size as possible.  That way when they’re in the oven baking, they’ll all finish at the same time.  Also, get the highest quality roast beef you can afford. It does make a difference :)

These potato skins would make the perfect appetizer for your next party!

  7. Oh. my. goodness. These are fabulous! I love that there is potato still left – I get so frustrated when you have to scoop out the entire inside! Such a waste! (And I love potatoes, so maybe I’m just overly-sensitive!)
    One question – how should the roast beef be sliced? I’m assuming pretty thin, but I’m not sure!

  16. Hi,Trish!

    Can you make the philly cheesesteak potato skins ahead of time? I’m having party and want something I can prepare ahead of time, keep in the fridge and then pop in the oven.


  17. What’s Happening i’m new to this, I stumbled upon this I have found It positively helpful and it has aided me out loads.

    I’m hoping to give a contribution & assist other customers like its aided me.
    Good job.

  18. Hi Trish..these were awesome I made some with mushrooms and some w onions instead of mushrooms and I think the onions made or taste more like Philly cheesesteak then the mushrooms did. I love your ideas!

  19. I am so glad I logged onto your website. These look amazing! I know exactly what I’m going to make them for. Can’t wait to try them. Definitely will stop back to look for more ideas.

  20. Shelley says:

    This is probably a dumb question but do I slice the potatoes in half before baking them? Or after? In the photos it looks like the potatoes have been sliced in half but in the instructions it only says to scrape out the insides. Can’t wait to try these! What a great idea!
