Potato skins question?

If I have only 3 potatoes that will make only 6 skins, How long in the oven just for the potatoes skins?


I just want to cook the skins, I've alrwady made the filling and I have a cheese fondue set to keep the cheese melted!

Well...

You have to bake them first. Either in the oven for about an hour, or the microwave til soft, but not too soft. I rub them w/ oil and sprinkle with coarse salt. I always scoop out the potato, leaving an even amount of potato around the edges. Then I either do twice baked w/ butter, sour cream, bacon and chives mixed with scooped out potato, or I have just put cheese and bacon in the shells and served w/ sour cream and ranch. Either way, once they're stuffed just pop em back in the oven to heat and melt cheese.

What are you putting in them?

If I do them in the oven, How many degrees should the heat be, maybe 300, 375?

I usually go 400 for about an hour. I think oven is the best way to go because the shells stay crisper.
