Potato skins Recipe

Ingredients:
5lb bag of russet potatoes
4 tablespoons olive oil
Seasoned salt
Garlic powder
Onion powder
2nd bake
4 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
Toppings:
8 ounces shredded cheese
½ cup sour cream
3 green onions chopped with the greens
Directions:
Preheat oven to 425. Scrub potatoes well and let dry.  Instead of measuring a bunch of seasonings and oil, I just oil the cookie sheet pan and then lightly season the pan.

Now roll the dry potatoes around to coat them and set aside on the oil pan.  Stab each potato once with a sharp knife.

Bake until the potatoes are soft when a fork or knife is inserted. I just give mine a squeeze, it’s about 45 minutes.  Let cool and then slice in half long ways.

Carefully scoop out the potato. I use a spoon to “cut” around the edge first.  Leave a small amount of potato in the shell.

Now heat the butter and oil together and use a brush to coat the inside of the shells. Put in oven for about 30 minutes or until golden.  Flip them over, brush the backside and back in the oven until they are crunchy on that side too! About 20 minutes.
