"This potato casserole has the same flavor of the potato skins you can order as a restaurant appetizer," shares Charlane Gathy of Lexington, Kentucky. "It's an ideal dish for tailgating and potlucks."

"I just made this for my husband and I. WOW, as my husband put it "this is a keeper!" The only change I made was to use some garlic salt and eliminate the sour cream (not my husband's favorite). Oh, sorry I did use Real Bacon Bits instead of bacon. SUPER!"

"Everyone in my family loved this amazing side dish. The only changes I made to the recipe was leaving out the sour cream and minced chives (food intolerance/allergies)."

"I made this for a father's day dinner, since it's lower in carbs than most potato dishes and my father is diabetic. My whole family went wild for it - even my kids, who normally don't care for potato skins. I only peeled half of the potatoes and thought the amount of skin was perfect. I also used reduced fat sour cream, reduced fat cheese and center cut bacon to cut some of the fat."

"I make this for any get together and I always get asked to bring it again. To make it quick I use bacon bits. Tasted great"

"I have made this recipe twice in one week now. DELICIOUS. I made some slight modifications: I used a whole bag of new potatoes. Since there were a few more potatoes I added 1/2 cup of butter, 2/3 cup of milk, I also put the chives in with the milk, butter, salt and pepper rather than on top. Also instead of dolloping sour cream, I spread across top like icing. YUM YUM! The company I have had loved it and are requesting this recipe."

"Mediocre. Not a lot of flavor. A baked potato with these toppings would be easier and taste better."

"This has become one of my favorite recipes! It's a side dish that will go well with almost anything. I leave the peels on the potatoes, and use about 8 medium/large red potatoes. So good!"

" I hope these ideas help you--

Use skim milk
use a butter like "healthy Start"
omit salt or use salt substitute
use low-fat cheese and sour cream

"I left the skins on, but only used the smallelst red potatoes, roughly the size of golf balls. Easy and delicious. I think that next time I will substitute pancetta for for the bacon. Easy to keep warm in a crock pot on the lowest setting. May need to stir in another piece of butter or a little milk/cream if you let them warm too long. Deee-lish!"
