These are delicious and easy to make. Use the baked potato flesh for hash browns, soup or whatever. Cook time does not include the initial potato baking time.

We enjoyed these as part of a very tasty brunch, with sautéed mushrooms. And they were so easy to make and SO delicious! All they require is a bit of forward planning. I baked the potatoes yesterday while some other dishes were in the oven. Today I sprinkled the potato peelings with a blend of Greek herbs and 4 cloves of minced garlic, then I dribbled the melted butter over them. I used slightly less butter (one slightly heaped tablespoon) and it was enough. I made the specified amount for four, and two of us demolished these in no time. If there'd been more, I have no doubts that we would have made short work of them too. So I do suggest that when you make these, that you make more than you think you'll need!
