March Madness snack: Texas Roadhouse Potato Skins


March Madness is in full swing, with both the KU Jayhawks and K-State Wildcats traveling for games in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament. 

Texas Roadhouse Kitchen Manager Alex Meyer joined morning anchor Brittany Moore to show off a recipe for a great sports snack: potato skins.


  • Six medium baking potatoes
  • Vegetable oil
  • All seasoning mix
  • Eight ounces of shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/8 cup bacon bits
  • Two cups of sour cream


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Scrub the potatoes clean, rub with vegetable oil and bake for approximately one hour.
  3. Remove potatoes from oven, allow to cool slightly before handling.
  4. Cut into halves.
  5. Using a spoon carefully scoop the inside of the potatoes until ¼ inch of the potato shell remains.
  6. Increase oven temperature to 450 degrees.
  7. Sprinkle potatoes with all seasoning mix, arrange in a baking dish and return to the oven baking on one side for 10 minutes.
  8. Flip the skins over and bake for an additional 10 minutes.
  9. Arrange the skins skin-side down and fill with cheddar cheese and bacon bits.
  10. Return to the oven and broil until cheese is bubbly — approximately two minutes.
  11. Serve hot with sour cream.
