Potato Skins Recipe

Chicken wings and celery aren’t the only delicious dippers for your buffalo ranch sauce. If you’re craving a crispy and satisfying snack, this potato skins recipe is the answer.

We love potato skins because they’re versatile enough to be a stand-alone meal served with a small side salad and sour cream, or they can be the perfect accent to your favorite burger as an alternative to french fries.

Call up a few friends, turn on the game, gather on your patio and enjoy this easy treat, any day of the week!
