How to Make PW’s Potato Skins

  • 1Preheat oven to 400. Fry the bacon. Wash potatoes and rub skin liberally with canola. Put on baking pan and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour til potatoes are tender.
  • 2Slice potatoes in half lengthwise. Scoop or spoon out the inner flesh of potatoes, leaving a small shell of potatoes in the skins.
  • 3Brush both sides of potato skins with canola oil. Salt both sides liberally.
    Put skins cut side down on pan and return to oven
