Tater skins, they're yet another food sitting on my "to make" list for way too long. Usually, I mash the skins along with the potatoes when I make mashed potatoes. This time, however, I left them out since I wanted to use the mashed potatoes in the Chicken Pot Shepherd's Pie. Since I'd have the skins, I figured I could cross one more food off my "to make" list. I first encountered Potato Skins in high school at a friend's house. Can you believe I'd never even heard of them before? Cheesy goodness with bacon and green onions - how can you resist? Plus, since all the fillings are contained, they're perfect as finger food or "on the go" food.

Do you have any foods where you were the "last to know?"

  1. I love tater skins as both and appetizer and a meal. I usually mess up a few though, perhaps I am not that patient. I will keep trying. Stopping by from #TurnItUpTuesdays
