Melissa's Story

Potato skins are always a favorite appetizer to serve at parties and events. Sometimes, it's nice to do an updated more elegant version to serve at a luncheon, brunch or tea. Or, as a side dish for a delicious dinner frittata.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
What a fun idea - potato skins... without the skins! Not only are these little guys tasty and cute, but they are also a great trick for controlling portion sizes.

colby jack cheese
16 oz

3/4 c
shredded parmesan cheese
5 slice

Had to try them. Made these and my husband loved them. I'll be making them for the Super Bowl.
These are not something where you make it your meal, it's an appetizer. Russet potatoes are the best thing next to Sweet potatoes. They are the healthiest potato next to the sweet potato. They loose a lot of their starch and sugar when they are cooked or baked not like all of the other varieties that don't loose their sugar or starch. If you are needing or wanting to cut your fat, use low fat cheese, light sour cream, turkey bacon, 33% low sodium salt. I love sweet potatoes too, but it would give this recipe a different taste. Everything else about this is healthy. But to me these were wonderful just the way they are.
