Potato Skins


Easy potato skins are broiled with a little butter and green onions. Use butter flavored spray and light sour cream to make this appetizer lower in fat.


  • 1 large baking potato
  • black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chopped green onion
  • butter flavor nonstick spray or melted butter
  • seasoned salt
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream regular or reduced fat


Bake one potato in microwave for 4 to 6 minutes. Remove from oven after baking; wrap in foil and let stand for 5 to 10 minutes. Unwrap potato and cut in half lengthwise. Let potato cool until it can be handled. Gently scrape the insides of the potato out, do not scrape all the way to the skin (leave a little potato around the edges and on the bottom). Reserve scrapings for another meal, if desired. Season skins with seaoned salt and pepper. Sprinkle green onion on each one. Place in small pan sprayed with the cooking spray. Lightly spray the potato skins with the butter flavored spray or drizzle with a little melted butter. Place under broiler until golden brown.

Remove from broiler and spread inside of each potato with 1 tablespoon of sour cream. Serve warm.
