Grilled Potato Skins with Creamy Topping

The creamy topping on these potato skins is so delicious. 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. —Stephanie Moon, Boise, Idaho

    These are so good, better than any restaurant. I served them as a side with our Father's Day dinner and they were my favorite dish. I used a lasagna size disposable pan to grill them so that I wouldn't lose all the toppings.
