2Cut potatoes in half lengthwise. Gently scoop out the potato, leaving about 1/4" of potato on the skin. (I use a little grapefruit spoon with a serrated tip.)

3When ready to bake, slice the halves of potatoes in half again (into quarters). Line up potatoes on baking sheet. Using a pastry brush, brush inside of the potato skins with teriyaki sauce. Place in oven and bake for 5-10 minutes at 350 or until skins are crisp.
