Recipe: Crispy potato skins – The Healthy Way !


Here’s a great and healthy idea for an appetizer or healthy snack !
Dietitian’s tip: You can use any number of herbs or spices to season the potato skins. Try fresh basil, chives, dill, garlic, cayenne pepper, caraway seed, tarragon or thyme.

Serves 2

2 medium russet potatoes
Butter-flavored cooking spray
1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

-Preheat the oven to 375 F.
-Wash the potatoes and pierce with a fork. Place in the oven and bake until the skins are crisp, about 1 hour.
-Carefully — potatoes will be very hot — cut the potatoes in half and scoop out the pulp, leaving about 1/8 inch of the potato flesh attached to the skin. Save the pulp for another use.
-Spray the inside of each potato skin with butter-flavored cooking spray. Press in the rosemary and pepper. Return the skins to the oven for 5 to 10 minutes. Serve immediately.
