This is from Woman's Day. We had these for dinner tonight and thought they were very good. Be sure to dip them in the dressing -- it makes the recipe in our opinion. Next time I would double the hot pepper sauce but then we really like spicy. The recipe easily halves for two.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Have a rimmed baking sheet ready.
  2. Pierce potatoes in 3 or 4 places with a fork. Bake directly on oven rack 55 to 60 minutes or until tender when pierced with a fork. Remove to cool.
  3. When baked and removed, increase oven temperature to 450 degrees,.
  4. When cool enough to handle, cut each potato into quarters.
  5. With a spoon, scoop pulp from skins, leaving at least 1/4 inch think shell. Reserve pulp for another use (I made mashed potatoes).
  6. Place skin side down on ungreased rimmed baking sheet.
  7. Mix butter, hot sauce, salt, garlic and onion powder in a small bowl.
  8. Brush evenly on potatoes.
  9. Bake 15 minutes or until browned at edges and crisp.
  10. Serve with dressing for dipping.

Mmmm...these take a little work, but are delicious! My favorite part of the potato is the skin so I was pleased with this healthy way to take care of my buffalo wing AND potato cravings. I highly recommend buying the good bleu cheese dressing or making your own to make this even more amazing.

Fabulous! As is, it was so spicy but when I dipped it in the Ranch dressing, it lessened the heat which is great for me. Indeed, don't leave out the dip! Buffalo potato skins is a first for me and I'm glad I tried it. I used the excess potatoes to make potato croquettes. Thanks for sharing, happynana! Made for Aus/NZ recipe swap #32.

Very good! I made a double batch and they were well received--gone in minutes! Next time, I might double the hot sauce for a spicier version, though my wife likes them as-is.
