Buffalo Crawfish Potato Skins

Back in the day when I was young, single and carefree, the girls and I would meet for drinks after work. Appetizers turned into dinner and my appetizer-for-dinner was always potato skins! What’s not to like? They’re like big french fries with cheese and bacon! And, like my son says, bacon makes everything better!

Nowadays, I do try to healthy it up a little when we eat out, but I will always prefer several small dishes or appetizers than a big meal. I want just a couple of bites of several different foods.

I had extra crawfish from a Crawfish dip that I made and was trying to think of a fun and unusual way to use it. First, let’s address that statement. Who has extra crawfish? I know, right? It’s a long story, but I did. I had just made some awesome Slow Cooker Buffalo chicken Potato Skins, why not Crawfish Potato Skins?!

So that’s just what I did and I ate them for dinner. Everything is right in the world!

If you like spicy food, you may want to add more red pepper and red pepper flakes. Extra bacon and cheese is always a bonus so feel free to add more of this lusciousness if you so desire.
