We tried the Costco TGI Fridays Cheddar & Bacon Loaded Potato Skins last weekend and today I’m reviewing them on the blog!


These are much more than just potato skins! They’re basically half potatoes they’re so large! I was not expecting them to be so generously sized. The potatoes come frozen with a decent amount of cheddar cheese and bacon on top. When baked following the package instructions get delicious melty cheese, smoky flavored bacon on top of golden baked potato skin. I found the cheese sauce on the Costco TGI Fridays Potato Skins to be slightly artificial tasting so I think the cheese part was just okay and if you don’t like artificial cheese taste you may want to steer clear of these. I enjoyed the potato and bacon taste though! I would rather the sauce not be included and just have shredded cheddar cheese.

I paid $13.99 Canadian for the TGI Fridays Loaded Potato Skins. My box has 12 potato skins. I thought for $13.99 there would be a few more than 12 potato skins so in my opinion, they’re slightly expensive.

These were so easy to cook! I just placed them on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and popped them in the oven for 24 minutes at 450 degrees farenheit. You can find them in the freezer section at Costco.

  1. TGIF stands for “Thank God It’s Friday.” It is a common expression used to express excitement and relief that the workweek is coming to an end and the weekend is about to begin. For many people, Friday signifies the start of a well-deserved break from work or school, and it is often associated with relaxation, leisure activities, and spending time with loved ones. TGIF – thank god it’s friday origin has become a popular phrase that captures the collective sentiment of looking forward to enjoying some much-needed rest and rejuvenation after a busy week.

  2. Both the cheese and bacon were a bit bland, and the potatoes themselves sucked.

    If you have the time, you can make some yourself with the tasty cheese and bacon crumble they sell at Costco. Make sure the latter is Greenfield though, not Kirkland.

  3. TGIF loaded potato skins taste really good, and other than convenience, that’s the best I can say about them. Just like Deborah Garrett said above, when I opened the box to get them out, I was shocked at how small they were, but I see that they’re a good size for snacking. There is no consistency. Some are half full, and some are broken. I can prepare and freeze my own for a whole lot less!

  4. Move over TGIF pototoe skins, there is a new one at Costco, uncle Rick’s or Al’s. 100 percent better than TGIF. Not rubbery or the cheese and bacon does not fall out. I give them a 10 out of 10. Go get you some.

  5. i absolutely love these! i can eat them whenever! don’t be fooled by the pictures, they taste great and for a better experience i like to add extra cheese to them halfway through the cooking period: this way the cheese won’t burn but it will still be hot and melted! i think they’re a great price for how big they are and how many you get. worth every penny to me!

  6. I bought a box thinking they would be a good addition to a get together. Not so much. The half potatoes in my box are small, the stuff to make them ‘loaded’ was I most cases, a small ball on each half potato. They are in the oven, hope they taste a whole lot better than they look.

  7. These potato skins are the best and you can only find them at Costco. Considering the size, 13.98 for 12 is a bargain, you only need 3-4 for a meal.

  8. I bought TGIF potato skins at Costco and I just opened them up because I’m going to be barbecuing and having company and a quarter of them were broken the cheese was on half of some and I’ve never been so disappointed
