How to use the skins of mashed potatoes for a potato skin appetizer


I don’t know about you, but, I am not a big fan of peeling potatoes.  I was given the assignment of making mashed potatoes for Thanksgiving dinner and thought, “Oh man!  I will have to peel ALL of those potatoes.  What a waste of time!  AND the skins hold all of the nutrients.”  I came up with a much better idea, AND created an appetizer in the process.  I boiled the potatoes with the skins on.  When they were done, I cut them in half and gently scooped out the centers for the mashed potatoes.  I placed the skin pieces on a cookie sheet, added toppings, and baked them to create a potato skin casserole.  They weren’t as pretty as traditional potato skins, but they sure were tasty!


I made guacamole and had sour cream as sides with the potato skin casserole.  BOTH dishes, mashed potatoes and potato skin casserole were a hit!


Happy eating…

“Wonder what I will come up with next”…
