How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 400F. Arrange potatoes in a large baking pan and bake for 1 hour, or until potatoes are soft.
  • In the meantime, if you haven't already, dice the pepperoni.
  • Remove from oven, but leave the heat on because you'll be putting them back in soon.
  • Cut each potato into 3 wedges, scooping out only half of the potato into a large mixing bowl, leaving a decent layer of potato above the skin so it holds it's basic shape.
  • When you've gathered all the potato flesh into the bowl, add butter, milk, salt, Pepper, Garlic, Oregano and Cayenne.
  • Mash with potato masher until smooth.
  • Pile the mashed potatoes evenly back into the potato skins, arranging them back into the baking pan in a single layer. (No laying them on top of each other!) You may need an extra pan for this.
  • Arrange the pepperoni evenly on top of the potato skins, then sprinkle either the Parsley or Chives to garnish the tops. (I add Parsley and extra Garlic)
  • Bake for an additional 15 minutes, then remove, arrange on plate and enjoy.
  • You may also add black olives, cheddar and/or Monterey Jack cheese, onions, etc. The options are limitless!

    I don't think potatoes count as a veggie...

    I am making these for tomorrow's Pats game. Potato skins are the only veggie one son will eat!
    Thanks for the post.
