Homeade Potato Skins...

Last weekend we had some friends over for a wine & appy evening. I loooove having appetizers for's so great to sample a bunch of little things that all have good flavour! I had been craving potato skins so I decided to make a batch. I don't think I've made these since the New Year's Eve party so it was more than time for another batch! Here's the recipe:
8 medium baking potatoes - bake potatoes at 400 degrees for 1 hour or until tender. Cool for 15 minutes. Cut into wedges and scoop out the majority of potato, leaving about a 1/4 inch on the skin. Lay Potato skins on sheet for baking ( I use my stoneware)
Mix together: 4 tbsp oil ( I use olive), 2 tsp seasoning salt, 1/4 tsp pepper, 1 tsp paprika, 1/8 tsp thyme. Brush over potato skins.
Now the fun part....chop up a bunch of goodies to sprinkle over your potatoes. I used farmer sausage, green onion, red pepper, green pepper and cheddar cheese.
Bake in 400 degree oven for 20 - 25 minutes.
I serve mine with salsa and sour cream.
Enjoy! (PS...the rest of the potatoes that you scooped out are perfect for shepherd's pie!)
