Grilled Loaded Potato Skins


These skins were the break-out hit of our Super-Bowl Party.
Everyone loves the Loaded Potato skins at 0ur favorite restaurant,
I just never thought about making them at home.
I think the slight smoke flavor from the grilling makes these MUCH better!

There are two problems with the restaurant skins...
They are fried!
They are expensive!

These are SO much better and SO easy to make!

And... I'm gonna show you how.

And I'm so excited about this recipe because potato skins are my fav and wanted to find a better way to make them to fit my healthy lifestyle. So excited about this one!
