the perfect Superbowl XLIII snack! =)

If you ask my husband what's my favorite food, he'd say anything potato. And he's right! I love potato foods -- from the usual fries and potato salad to gourmet baked potatos and Shakey's Mojos =)  For this this week, here's a TGI Friday's potato snack recipe (serves 2-4) -- the perfect companion as you watch Superbowl XLIII this Sunday. Happy cooking!

TGI Friday's Baked Potato Skins

5 baked potato skins, cut in half (empty of most of the potato)
1 tablespoon melted butter
seasoning salt
1 green onion, diced
1/2 cup crispy fried bacon, diced (about 5 strips)
3/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1/3 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon snipped fresh chives

1. Heat oven to 375F.
2. Brush potato shells with melted butter and sprinkle seasoning salt to taste.
3. Bake for 15-20 minutes until crisp but not dry and hard.
4. Remove and sprinkle with cheese, bacon and onion, place back in oven until cheese is melted.
5.  Serve with sour cream and chives. You can also Ranch dressing or honey mustard.
