These are excellent potato skins and could go as an appetizer or serve with a meal. The cooking time was right on. Crisp on the outside and nice texture on the inside. We loved the rosemary in this. Altered a little from the original TOH recipe.

Yum! I baked the whole potato in the microwave, then scooped off the potato, mixed soft margarine with dried rosemary, and seasonings. Broiled the skins, till browning, then piled on the cheese and broiled again! The edges were just crispy, the way I like them! Thank you!
super skins. I loved the cooking in the microwave for most, and since its past grill season i used bake at 350 but turned the broil on for the last minutes. Made them alot like nachos, yet left off the bacon to reduce fat. The fresh rosemary/garlic butter brush was wonderful.
We had these potato skins tonight and they are wonderful! I couldnt grill them because I forgot the grill was out of gas. Cooked the potatoes in the microwave as directed. After butter was melted and I added the other ingredients, placed the potatoes in the skillet to brown, turning often. Put them back in the baking dish, sprinkled shredded cheese and back in the microwave until cheese melted. DH does not care for green onions so I didnt add them. We enjoyed and the butter and rosemary smelled so good! Thank you NimrodCook, we will be making these again!
