      Absolutely delicious! These potatoes are similar to potato skins that you get in a restaurant. I found that I needed to add another 2 Tbsp of Italian Dressing when I flipped the potatoes as the dressing had been absorbed. Served with sour cream and these were devoured. I made these potatoes to go alongside your Simple Italian Grilled Chicken and they pair together very well. Thx so much TasteTester!
