Today’s post is sponsored by Nikos® Feta cheeses, but my love for full-flavored feta is all my own!
Grilled Potato Skins - The ultimate comfort food! Made with my new favorite Nikos Feta Cheese. Every bite contains a zesty, savory, and slightly tangy flavor!
One of my favorite and ultimate game and comfort foods is potato skins. I cannot seem to get enough of them! Not only are they absolutely delicious, but they are perfect when they are homemade.
You get to control the toppings and you can decide on how cheesy they are. Yum. There are two things I look forward to in a potato skin: the cheese and whether it has enough and the bacon. Yep. A potato skin isn't complete without crumbled bacon.
Bacon always adds the perfect touch.
You guys are in luck today. Not only is there bacon, but these potato skins are grilled (yummy) and have crumbled feta cheese on top! I am in love with trying Nikos® feta cheese. The flavor is perfect on top of these potato skins and adds a zesty, savory, and slightly tangy flavor. Absolute perfection every time you take a bite.

Grilled Potato Skins – The ultimate comfort food! Made with my new favorite Nikos Feta Cheese. Every bite contains a zesty, savory, and slightly tangy flavor!
- 4 medium-sized potatoes
- ½ cup shredded cheese
- 4 pieces of bacon chopped
- ¼ cup Nikos Traditional Feta Cheese
Wash and dry each potato. Wrap each potato in a piece of aluminum foil.
Get your grill started depending on the instructions on your specific grill. Once the flavors have gone down, place the potatoes in the grill. Allow them to cook for 30-40 minutes until tender. Remove from grill and allow the potatoes to cool. Once cooled, remove the aluminum foil.
Cut each potato lengthwise. Scoop the insides out, making sure to leave a little around the edges and bottom.
Place the potato skins onto the grill and grill until crispy on the edges. Place the potato skins onto a grill-safe sheet. Add shredded cheese and bacon on top. Grill until the cheese has melted. Top with feta cheese.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wash and dry each potato. Place potatoes on top of a baking sheet and bake for 40-50 minutes or until tender. Allow the potatoes to cool. Once cooled, cut each lengthwise. Scoop the insides out, making sure to leave a little around the edges and bottom.
Add shredded cheese and bacon on top. Broil on high until cheese has melted. Top with feta cheese.
