Step 1: Make Your Potato Canvas

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 F
  2. Scrub potatoes and carefully pierce several times with a fork or sharp knife
  3. Rub potatoes with olive oil
  4. Bake on a foil-lined baking sheet for about 50 minutes
  5. Allow potatoes to cool enough to touch
  6. Once cool, slice each potato in half lengthwise
  7. Using a spoon, scoop out the flesh, leaving about 1/4 inch intact, and then set the flesh aside (add some butter, milk, salt and pepper to make mashed potatoes)

Pick a filling below. To add a little extra flavor and crispiness to the skins, melt 1/2 cup of butter and baste. Set your broiler to high. Place filled skins on the foil-lined baking sheet and broil for about 4-5 minutes.
