      What is not to love about classic potato skins?! I made these twice now... yesterday for hubby and I to munch on during football, and again today for lunch. This is how I normally make potato skins, except your way bumps the flavor way up. I never thought of brushing the skins with garlic butter. Genius! I brushed the insides and outsides. Yummy! I served these with sour cream and chives. Definitely making them this way from now on. Thanks for posting. (Made for PRMR)

      Superb! Love the garlic butter and of course the cheese and bacon. Served with leftover sauce from Spicy Lime and Cilantro Turkey Pita Fajitas (Grilled). Perfect football food. Thank you for posting.
