“The creamy topping on these potato skins is so delicious,” says Stephanie Moon, of Boise, Idaho. “These make an excellent summertime treat alongside your favorite grilled meat. They are especially good with barbecue ribs. If you’re not grilling your meal, you can bake these appetizers in a 375° oven for 18-20 minutes."
