For potato skins:
  • When potatoes are cool enough to handle, use the tines of a fork and your thumbs to break potatoes into 3 or 4 irregular (rustic looking) pieces. Use a teaspoon to carefully scoop out the inside of each potato piece, leaving a shell about 1/4 inch thick. (Cover and chill the leftover white portion for another use.)

Instructions Checklist
  • Place the potatoes, skin side down, in a single layer on large shallow baking pan. Drizzle oil over potatoes; sprinkle with rosemary. Return to oven (time them to be finished with dip coming out of the oven) and bake for 20 to 25 minutes more or until crispy and heated through.
