This post brought to you by TABASCO® Original Red. All opinions are 100% mine.

TABASCO asked if I’d like to try out their Original Red hot sauce and develop a recipe for Superbowl parties. I love hot sauce, though I don’t eat it too often, so I jumped at the chance to use some creativity in the kitchen.

That said, I was a bit stumped about what to make at first. I’m loyal to another brand’s hot sauce when it comes to Buffalo chicken. And really, my favorite thing to use TABASCO sauce on is EGGS. And who serves EGGS at Superbowl parties?

Well, I took the idea of eggs, and ran from there. And came up with this awesome snack.

One of my favorite “bar foods” is potato skins. And while I think they’re fine to eat – all real ingredients – they’re not low-carb. Which means they’re likely to make me eat more than I’m actually hungry for, and make me hungrier and possibly bloated. Low-carb food doesn’t do that. So I made this high-protein version!

Loaded Fauxtato Skins

This recipe is for a small amount – 5 “skins”, because I didn’t want to make a ton while my husband is away for work. But this one is super-easy to double/triple/etc.

You will need:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp + 2 tsp coconut flour
  • Cheddar cheese – about 1/3 a cup, shredded. Please grate your own rather than buying pre-shredded.
  • Bacon, cooked and cut-up. For the love of bacon, please don’t buy “bacon bits.”
  • Green onions, sliced, optional
  • Full fat sour cream
  • TABASCO® Original Red Hot Sauce

Preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a small bowl, combine the eggs and coconut flour until smooth. If you’d like an extra-zingy version, also add some Tabasco sauce to the mixture. Let sit for a few minutes while your oven preheats and you get your baking sheet ready (line with parchment). Then stir again. (Coconut flour usually needs a few minutes to “absorb” completely.)

Drop spoonsful of the egg mixture onto the parchment-lined baking sheet. Jiggle your baking sheet back and forth in one direction so that the lumps morph into oval-shapes. Pop in the oven and cook for about 7 minutes. These are the “skins.”

Meanwhile, mix some sour cream with Tabasco Original Red hot sauce, to your taste. This is where the dish gets its flair.

When they’re finished cooking, flip your fauxtato skins over so the flat side is up, and top with cheese and bacon. Pop in the oven for a few more minutes to melt the cheese.

Remove and sprinkle with green onions.

Serve with the Red hot sour cream for dipping.

I made these last night for a Super Bowl party and they were a big hit. Great idea and better for you. They were really tasty and easy to make. I will say that coconut flour is a bit pricey but if you can find other ways to use it, no bg deal. Thanks for the great recipe.

Can peanut flour be used instead of coconut flour?

I’ve never used peanut flour so I have no idea how it acts. You’ll have to report back if you try it!

I love this recipe! It is so good! And we use the “skin” recipe for mini pizza crusts and sandwich bread. For the mini pizzas and sandwich bread we just add some garlic powder, onion powder, and salt to the batter before we cook it. And when in the mood for a little spice some hot sauce gets added to the batter as well. So yummy!

Those look great. I’m assuming the coconut flour is used to fulfill the grain-free requirement. I don’t have any, and don’t require grain-free, so is there an substitute flour I could use?
