1 1/2 tablespoons
Italian-style salad dressing
Thanks so much for the idea! I didn't use salad dressing, but instead olive oil with garlic salt & chardonnay smoked sea salt. These tasted a lot like Ms Vicky's kettle chips only less hard... great way to use up something I always hated throwing out!
Being that a lot of reviews stated that the skins didn't turn out crispy, I decided to spray them with evoo instead and then added several seasonings. With this change they were very crispy and really good. Fantastic source of potassium and they make a great and healthy snack. Thanks Kelly!
Surprisingly, they were bland...even with loads of Zesty Italian poured over top..and dipped in ranch dressing with green onions afterwards. Nor were they very crispy. My end verdict? Not so yummy after all, I don't recommend them.
Update: Tried these again and used zesty Italian and sprinkled sea salt over them and they were actually pretty tasty! Served with ranch dressing. Thanks for the frugal recipe! Original review: No one in my family would eat these. I tried some and they were "ok". Not alot of flavor. Thanks for the "creative" idea, though. Just didn't work for us. ):
I actually completely changed this recipe. I think the idea was great but changed due to personal preference. I lightly coated with E.V. olive oil and seasoned with the following; Ground Cumin, Cayenne Pepper, Seasoned Salt and dried Thyme. Turned out very well.
This is much blander than thought it would be with the Italian dressing. The recipes for baked skins crisp, then topped with cheese and bacon bits are a lot tastier. And don't forget the sour cream...can't be on a diet with this one tho.
After reading the other reviews I tried to enhance this recipe with zesty italian dressing and some parmesan cheese. I also sprayed the baking sheets with Pam to prevent sticking. Unfortunately, these potato skins still weren't that great. However, we felt very frugal eating them!
Sounds better than it is. Bland and boring.
