Potato Skins

Deep fry or brush the potatoes at 400°F for 1–1½ hours for large potatoes and 40–60 minutes for medium. Cut in half lengthwise and scoop out the soft centers. (Mash the insides for a dinner side dish).

Brush the skins inside and out with melted butter or a mixture of butter and oil and return to top shelf of oven. Bake at 400°F for 20 minutes or until the skins are beautifully crisp and golden brown. For deep frying, omit brushing with butter or oil and deep fry until golden brown. Fill with toppings such as shredded cheese and bacon bits and return to oven to melt.
