My friends, this recipe is A-plus and two thumbs up! The skins came out absolutely perfect - better than a restaurant. I think they are so good because of the seasoned oil you brush on before baking, so don't skip that step. We doubled the recipe and served with store-bought Ranch dressing. I highly recommend this recipe! I posted a picture too.

My husband and I were recovering from colds and where tired of soup. Found this recipe, the only one I had all the ingredients for, and we loved it. I think the next time I make it I will add with the cheese some taco meat and make it a full meal. It was easy to do and looked beautiful. Would serve to company. Also, very good warmed up the next day for lunch.

Really good! I made them yesterday for our New Year's Eve as a snack,and they turned out great. Only different thing I did,was to spinkle the chopped green onion in them with the bacon, and then put in the cheese. We had them with sour cream,and most of them are gone.Happy New Year!

Excellent recipe. I seved these as a side dish with quesadillas and they were gone in no time. I was out of garlic powder so I sprinled them with cajun seasoning to blend with the quesdillas. Will be making again soon.

Wow, these were soooo good. We had them as a side dish instead of an appetizer. The whole family loved them and they were pretty easy to make (even with rubbing the oil all over them, cause I couldn't find my pastry brush!). I only used 3 potatoes because they were huge and they ended up being the perfect side dish size for the 6 of us. Thanks for sharing...theses were fabulous.

Wonderful, wonderful recipe. These have got to be the best potato skins I have ever made. They rival if not surpass restaurant ones also. Didn't have cheddar cheese so I used colby and Monterey Jack cheese and it was delicious. Easy to make and will definitely be making these often. Thank you for sharing.

I've never made potato skins before ...but I will definitely be making these again! However.......I made the mistake of using my Pampered Chef cheese grater & fresh parmesan; since it wasn't grated fine enough, it was difficult to "brush" on the skins & when I turned them upside down on the baking sheet, a lot of it fell out. Next time, I'll use the grated parmesan in the can or grate the fresh with my microplaner.
