Everyone loves potato skins and these taste like pizza too! My kids like me to have these in the freezer for a quick snack. They are yummy!

Top Review by Chef Patience

These were pretty good. The potato skins would have been better if they had been seasoned. Maybe brushing them with butter and salt on the outside before baking them the first time would do the trick.
