on friday nights, my hubby and i have date nights. after we put this kids to bed, we cut on netflix, find a good movie and dig into some snacks. that night, i was craving some potato skins, but they can be so time consuming! i wanted something fast, so i could get to our movie. this is what i came up with. it is a great twist on regular potato skins. no need to remove potato pulp or rebake anything. a must try.
