Crispy Potato Skins
By Mayo Clinic Staff | Serves 2
Dietitian's tip: You can use any number of herbs or spices to season the potato skins. Try fresh basil, chives, dill, garlic, cayenne pepper, caraway
seed, tarragon or thyme.
2 medium russet potatoes
Butter-flavored cooking spray
1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- Preheat oven to 375°F
- Wash the potatoes and pierce them with a fork. Place in the oven and bake until the skins are crisp, about 1 hour.
- Carefully- potatoes will be very hot- cut the potatoes in half and scoop out the pulp, leaving about 1/8 inch of potato flesh attached to the skin. Save the pulp for another use.
- Spray the inside of each potato skin with butter-flavored cooking spray. Press in the rosemary and pepper. Return the skins to the oven for 5 to 10 minutes. Serve immediately.
