Scots Skins...Not Quite, But i Think This is Close

Crispy Potato Skins

Top these crispy deep-fried potato skins with shredded cheese and chopped cooked bacon.

4 large baking potatoes, scrubbed
oil for deep frying
sour cream mixed with chives, optional
shredded cheese, optional
cooked bacon, crumbled, optional

Prick potatoes in several places with a fork; bake in a 400° oven until tender, about 1 hour.
Remove, cool slightly, and cut in halves lengthwise.
Scoop out potatoes and refrigerate for another meal or casserole topping.
Cut skins in half again.
Heat oil in a deep fryer to 375°.
Place potato skins in deep fryer basket; lower into oil and deep fry for about 2 to 3 minutes, or until skins are browned and crisp.
Transfer potato skins to paper towels to drain.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Serve with sour cream and chives, if desired, or top with cheese and place under the broiler to melt.
