Crispy Potato Skins

Appetizer, Side Dishes


3 lbs potatoes (1.5 kg)

(approx. 13 oz (368 g) potato skins)

1/4  cup olive oil (60 mL)

1 tsp seasoning salt (5 mL)

1/4  tsp paprika (1 mL)

1 green onion, chopped (optional)

11/2  cups Monterey Jack, OR (375 mL)

Cheddar cheese


Peel potato skins in thin strips.  Set peel aside. 

In large bowl, combine olive oil, seasoning salt and paprika.  Add potato skins and toss in seasoned oil to coat well.  Lay out in single layer on cookie sheets.  Bake in 425°F (220°C) oven 15 to 30 minutes, checking every 5 minutes after the 15 minutes have elapsed to remove crisp, golden potato skins.

Once all potato skins are baked to perfection, lay them out once again on cookie sheets and sprinkle with green onion and Monterey Jack or Cheddar cheese.  Bake 5 to 10 minutes, or until cheese has melted.
