They’re the perfect twist on a traditional potato skin, and trust me when I say anyone you make them for will fall in love so fast… if you don’t eat them all first! They’re super easy to make, so let’s get right into it!

I’m really excited to announce that this recipe is in collaboration with Follow Your Heart! They’re one of my favorite brands, and I’ve gotten so many requests to make more recipes using their products from y’all, since they’re so accessible across the US. The products I used in this recipe are their brand new vegan finely shredded cheddar cheese & chipotle vegenaise! They’re so dang good and really send this recipe over the top!

Here’s what you’ll need to make them!

  • 4 baked potatoes, cooled 
  • 2 cans brined jackfruit, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce 
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar 
  • 1 tbsp + 2 tsp garlic powder 
  • Salt and pepper to taste 
  • Follow Your Heart Cheddar Shreds 
  • Follow Your Heart Chipotle Vegenaise 
  • Sliced green onion 
  • ½ cup melted vegan butter 

You can also top them with whatever you want, even some basic coleslaw would be amazing on top of these! Or pickles!

And here’s how to make them!

  1. Bake your potatoes until fork tender and allow to cool almost completely. 
  2. Cut them in half and scoop out the insides, leaving around 1/4” of potato in the skin. 
  3. Melt your butter and mix in 2 tsp garlic powder plus salt to taste. Brush that on both sides of the potato.
  4. Preheat your oven to 425F, flip your potatoes cut side down and bake for 10 minutes, flip them over, and bake an additional 10 minutes until slightly browned and the skins are crisp. 
  5. In a skillet over medium heat add your jackfruit with a little cooking oil. Once it browns, add in your barbecue sauce, apple cider vinegar, 1 tbsp garlic powder, and salt / pepper to taste. Shred the jackfruit and cook for 5-7 minutes. 
  6. Fill your potato skins with jackfruit and top with cheddar shreds. Place back in the oven for 10 minutes until the cheese is melted. 
  7. Top with chipotle vegenaise and sliced green onion.
