American Tavern Potato Skins
You know what kind of cheese this is if you're a “whiz” kid. It's the right cheese for the job.
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Cut the potatoes into wedges with 1 to 2 inches of skin on them. Toss them with the melted butter then the flour and arrange them on a baking sheet in one layer. Bake for 20 minutes and remove from the oven.
Scoop the extra potato flesh out of the skins and save it for another use.
Heat the peanut oil in a deep fryer, heavy pot, or wok to 375°F. Fry the potato skins in the oil in batches for 1 to 2 minutes. Drain on paper towels and arrange on plates skin-side down.
Fill the potato boats with melted cheese and bacon crumbles. Sprinkle with green onions, and top with sour cream.

Some people turn their noses up at American cheese, but where would the cheeseburger be without it? What's more, pasteurized processed “cheese food” is actually more nutritious than other true cheeses because it has whey added back to it to make it meltable.
