Everybody seems enraptured by seven-layer dip. And not that it’s bad, but it’s been done. And done again. And again.

So for this year’s Super Bowl party, why not freshen it up a bit? Take the same concept of shoveling piles of delicious toppings into your mouth, but instead of chips use a slab of roasted potato.

To create our seven-layer potato skins, we started with some of the traditional toppings for potato skins — bacon, scallions and cheese. From there, we added crumbled sausage (more pig!), a garlicky sour cream and caramelized onions. OK, so they’re more like over-stuffed, almost twice-baked potatoes. But with party food this delicious, who cares?
