Potato Skins

I was invited to a ladies get together last night with relatives and wanted to bring some munchies along, food and friends go hand in hand, right?! One of my favourite appetizers is potato skins, they're relatively fast and easy to make at least once you have the potatoes baked. And they taste great too!

Potato Skins

7 or 8 large potatoes
3 Tbsp oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp paprika
1/8 tsp black pepper

Wrap potatoes in tin foil and bake at 375F until tender, about 45 minutes. Slice potatoes in half, for the larger potatoes you might want to cut your potatoes into quarters. Using a knife or spoon scoop out the middles. Mix the oil and spices in a small bowl and brush onto the potato skins. Top with your toppings in the order listed and bake at 400F until the cheese has melted and the potatoes get a little crispy.

Tomato, chopped
Bacon bits
Green onions, chopped
Shredded cheese of your choice (I use marble)

Enjoy, bet you can't eat just one!
