CHEW THE RIGHT THING
HGs Super-Skinny Skins
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!
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)
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.
Serving Size: 4 pieces
Nutritionals may vary based on potato size.
T.G.I. Friday's Frozen Snacks: Potato Skins, Cheddar & Bacon
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.
