Baked Potato Skins


  • 4 large russet potatoes
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground coriander seed


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

Bake the potatoes for 1 hour. Remove the potatoes from the oven, but keep the oven on. Slice the potatoes in half lengthwise, and let them cool for 10 mins. Scoop out most of the potato flesh, leaving about 1/4 inch of flesh against the potato skin (you can save the potato flesh for another use, like mashed potatoes)

Cut each potato half crosswise into 3 pieces. Place the olive oil in a small cup. Dip each potato piece into the olive oiland place it on a baking sheet. Repeat this with the remaining potato pieces

Combine the salt and the spices and sprinkle the mixture over the potatoes. Bake the potato skins for 15 minutes or until they are crispy and brown.

Serve them immediately.
