I make this a lot as an appetizer and serve it with sour cream. It is different than most potato skins, but very good.

Yum, these were great. My husband and I wolfed them down. I left them in for about 20 minutes so they would be a little more crispy.

Delicious!..I actually made these on the grill, placed them on heavy-duty foil, but not completely covered, they were so good! the same quality and taste as the restaurants serve. I used large Russet taters, and sprinkle on some grated cheddar cheese about 5 minutes before they finished baking. Awesome potato skins! Melody, thanks for posting, we really enjoyed these with our grilled chicken...Kittencal:)
