Thin-Skinned

Don't you miss the days of shoving hot, cheesy, AWESOME potato skins in your face?  Good news, people.  They're baaa-aaak!   Thanks to your close, personal pal HG, you can chew these formerly evil snacks, sans guilt!

 

Ingredients:

3 medium-sized potatoes

1/2 cup shredded fat-free cheddar cheese

2 tbsp. Betty Crocker Bac-Os Bits
1/4 cup chopped chives (optional)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Prep potatoes by washing & drying to remove dirt and piercing them several times with a fork to prevent bursting while cooking.  Place potatoes on a microwave-safe plate.  Microwave for 4 minutes.  Turn potatoes over and return to microwave for 4 more minutes.  Allow to cool for a few minutes.  Cut potatoes in half lengthwise.  Using a fork, gently scrape out the bulk of the flesh. Place potato skins on a baking dish spritzed with nonstick spray.  Cook for 8-10 minutes, depending on how crispy you like your potato skins.  Evenly distribute cheese and bacon bits onto potato skins.  Turn off oven, but return skins to the oven until the cheese has melted (for crispy crunchy cheese, leave the oven on).  Remove and top with chives.  Cut skins in half.  Serve with fat-free sour cream and/or salsa.  Makes 3 servings.

Potato Sins

No one in their right mind thinks potato skins loaded with bacon and cheese are good for you.  In fact, most restaurants refuse to make nutritionals for their skins public (not exactly a shocker!).  T.G.I. Friday's is no exception.  And as fat-packed as these supermarket skins are, we'd bet our last dollar on the fact that their restaurant ones are WAY worse for you.   Our point is that potato skins are scary.  They generally contain a minimum of 16 grams of fat per small serving, and often pack in much more!  So, if you feel like being a little decadent every now and then, don't indulge in skins at chain restaurants or watering holes; whip up a batch of HG's Super-Skinny Skins and chew to your heart's content.
