Do you eat the outside/skin? Or just the middle? I just got a weird look and comment from the waiter. “Hungry eh?” Thing was smothered in butter and salt I couldnt help it. Normally I don’t.

The skin is the best part. If I had to make a choice, I would dump the middle and eat the skin. You should have asked the waiter if he has ever seen an appetizer called "potato skins".

that was kinda my thinking as well. When they come out in foil and the outside is dry it just doesn’t look appetizing. But this bad boy was glistening and begging for it.

This was to have a secondary use for expired baked potatoes in the holding bins. Steak soup is for steaks that were overcooked and the trimmings. Good idea in my opinion.

Wendys does the same thing with their Chili. Burger re-use.

I love the whole potato by the way! Havent had one in a year due to my diet. But I love em still!

I cheat at home...spray the offending potatoes with cooking spray, and roll them around on a cookie sheet dusted with pink sea salt, pepper and just a touch of garlic and onion powder.

I think we're having taters tomorrow🥴
And with that I'm throwing on 2lb of thick sliced bacon, a stack of flapjacks and a dozen eggs...can't wait.

I usually don't eat the skin, but if it's crispy with plenty of butter and salt..... he'll yeah! I also like a dusting of Pappy's on it as well.

Always been told, if you eat any part of the potato, eat the skin. It has the most nutrients. And you can bet I eat the skin and everything, with butter, bacon and cheese and plenty of it.

Here is how weird I am. First I eat the inside of the potatoe then reheat the skin and eat that second.

Make a loaded baked potatoe with all the fixins, sour cream, butter, cheese, chives or green onions & real bacon. Salt and pepper. Mix it all together and eat just the inside.

Them put the skin back in the oven with butter, cheese and bacon. When it’s crispy take it out and put more sour cream and chives. Eat the crispy skin.

Serve with steak and ranch beans.

Pierce the potatoes with a fork. Spread butter on the outside of potato, seasoning salt, pepper.

Place in a plastics sack.

Tie sack shut

Microwave until tender.

Let them steam in the bag a few minutes after you remove them from microwave. Remove from bag and enjoy!

You're welcome

Mine is similar. Poke holes with a fork all around. Coat with Olive Oil then liberally with salt and pepper. Let sit an hour. Put on the pit boss at 350 for an hour or more depending on size. Skin is nice and crispy with a little smoke.

I have always cooked BP's the same way clean them up put oil on them them wrap in foil and cook. I searched how to cook the perfect BP and now have changed. First preheat oven to 450 clean potato's poke some holes in them and into the oven as is for 30 min. then pull them out and brush them with melted butter and then coarse salt then back in for another 30 min They are light and fluffy inside with the skin nice and crispy.

That was the rule in my house. You don't have to put everything on your plate but if you do it had better be eaten. Oh yeah, and when you leave the table the kitchen is closed for the night.
Yup, member of the clean plate club. I think the clean plate club is a bad thing, it not strictly enforced in my house as I feel it causes bad eating habits in the long run.

Mom always coated the outside with Crisco then stuck a couple steel skewers through them. Then they went into this little chrome mini oven. We were lucky to get margarine. LOL

Oil, salt and pepper the skin.
I usually skip the insides and eat the skins if seasoned correctly

The next morning, chopped upped skins scrambled with eggs and onions are outstanding. Dumb ass remark by that waiter.

clean coat with Olive oil and garlic salt. Convection oven at 375 for an hour directly on the rack with a catch pan underneath. The skin is the best part.

It is damn tasty! It came already mixed in bags, just add trimmings. So unfortunately no recipe. Same for the Molasses Bread, came ready to bake from a bakery they contract with!

Triple wrapped in tin foil, bury them in the camp fire coals, about 45 minutes later eat it like a apple. Even good cold the next day. Great carbs for long hikes in the back pack.

We need to bring back schoolhouse rock. You gotta eat the skin, that's where the vitamins are. I eat the skin and then I eat the skin off my wife's potato because she won't eat it.
