Serves: 16 servings
  • 8 small russet potatoes
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • ½ onion, chopped
  • 1 lb lean ground turkey or beef (I used Jennie-O Lean Ground Turkey)
  • 8 oz can tomato sauce
  • 2 tbs apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • ½ cup pickle chips, finely chopped
  • 2 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • 4 slices cooked bacon, chopped into bits
  • ⅔ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tbs ketchup
  • 2 tbs mustard
  • 2 green onions, chopped (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Using a fork, pierce each potato a few times. Place potatoes on a large baking sheet. Bake for about 45 minutes until a fork can easily be inserted into them. Let the potatoes cool for a few minutes.
  2. While the potatoes are cooling, prepare the ground turkey. Heat the olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the onions to the pan and sprinkle with salt. Sauté the onions for 2 minutes until soft. Add the ground turkey. Cook turkey for about 5-7 minutes minutes, stirring occasionally, until the meat is cooked through. Add the tomato sauce, vinegar, onion powder, and garlic powder. Stir to combine and cook for another minute. Set aside.
  3. When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut them in half lengthwise. With a spoon, scoop out the inside of the potato, leaving a thin layer. Place each potato skin back on the large lined baking sheet. Brush each skin with olive oil using a brush or your fingers. Put back into the oven for about 7-8 minutes until they’re browned and crispy.
  4. Fill each potato skin with an equal amount of meat filling. Top each potato skin with a sprinkle of pickles, tomatoes, bacon, and cheddar cheese. Bake in the oven for 5-7 minutes until the cheese has melted and the filling is heated. Top each potato skin with a splatter of ketchup and mustard, and a few chopped green onions (optional).
