Was looking around on Pinterest and found this sassy way to make little miniature potato skins. 
Picture
_Ingredients:
12 Dutch Yellow Baby Potatoes
PAM Olive oil spray
Salt and Pepper
2 strips Pancetta, roughly chopped (bacon also works)
1 cup of Guacamole (recipe below)
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 tbsp red onion, finely chopped

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray the whole potatoes with PAM olive oil spray and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 35 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Remove from oven and let cool until they are cool enough to handle. Cut the potatoes in half, lengthwise, and scoop out a little of the flesh, leaving about 1/4 inch remaining.

Place the cut potatoes back onto the baking sheet, flesh side up. Lightly spray the tops of the potatoes with the PAM olive oil spray.

In a small skillet over medium high heat, crisp up the pancetta. Once crisp, remove from pan and set on a paper towel to drain some of the excess oil.

Place some of the pancetta into the potato, cover with a bit of cheese, and place back into the oven for 5-7 minutes until the cheese has melted.

Top with the guacamole, sprinkle with a few chopped red onions and serve!

Simple Guacamole:
Ingredients
3 avocados
1 lemon, juiced
1/8 cup chives, finely chopped
salt and pepper to taste
Directions:
Cut the flesh from the avocado and place into a bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients and mash together with a fork until chunky. Set aside.
