Years ago a good friend of mine used to order these all the time whenever we would go out for some good eats. I loved them to and would always sneak one or two from her plate, never ordering my own batch as there were other things enticing me.
Making your own cheesy, crunchy, melt in your mouth baked potato skins is as easy as it sounds. They really do taste as good (if not better) as when you order it in a restaurant or pub. Another perfect appetizer to make if you are having friends over to watch a game as you can prep them in advance and have them ready to pop into the oven.
You can vary the cheese for a different flavour, but we tend to stick with old cheddar for this one. I do not mix any of the leftover potato back in since we are not making stuffed potatoes and these taste really good as is. You can fry up the leftover potato and make a delicious hash or hasbrowns.
