Baked Potato Skins

Prep Time: 10 Min Servings: 8 servings Difficulty: very easy

Ingredients:

  • 1 Large russet potato
  • 2 Large sweet potatoes
  • 1⁄2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 tbsp Parsley, chopped
  • 1 tsp Dried basil leaves
  • 1⁄2 tsp Garlic powder
  • 1⁄2 tsp Salt
  • 1⁄2 cup Fat-free sour cream
  • 2 tbsp Chopped fresh chives or scallion greens

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with foil. Pierce the potatoes a few times with a fork. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until easily pierced with a fork. Remove and allow them to cool slightly.
  3. In a small bowl combine parmesan, parsley, basil, garlic powder, and salt. When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, quarter lengthwise. Scoop out the potato leaving 1⁄4 inch thick shell.
  4. Reserve the potato for another use.
  5. Cut the strips in half crosswise. You should have 24 wedges. Place on the foil-lined baking sheet. Coat both sides with non-stick cooking spray. Sprinkle with the parmesan mixture.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown. To serve, top with dollops of sour cream. Sprinkle with the chives.
