Philly Cheesesteak Potato Skins

  • 6 Yukon Gold potatoes, washed, baked, halved and scooped to create 12 potato skin shells
  • 1 TBS olive oil
  • 1/2 cup yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 oz. roast beef, roughly chopped
  • Seasoning for skin shells: salt, black pepper and paprika to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large non-stick skillet, heat the oil over medium-to high heat. Add the sliced onion and bell peppers cooking until translucent and beginning to soften, about 3 minutes. Add the roast beef, salt and black pepper and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from heat. If needed, season to taste with additional salt and pepper and set aside. Place the potato skin shells on a baking sheet and season shells with salt, black pepper and paprika. Fill each shell with roast beef mixture; then, drizzle each with the cheese sauce.


  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/2 stick melted butter
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup american cheese, sliced and roughly chopped

In a medium saucepan, melt the butter, add the flour and combine to make a roux. Slowly add milk and whisk constantly. Continue adding milk until the sauce sticks to the back of a spoon. Turn off heat. Add cheese a little at a time, stirring until all the cheese is completely incorporated. If desired, add more cheese to your liking.
