We all know that potatoes are a real treat baked in the oven. However, as we move towards a healthier lifestyle, potatoes have to be limited, especially if you are a low carber. However limited doesn't mean eliminated and these baked potato peels make hit the spot and be a better alternative that roasted potatoes would be. Great to serve for parties and game day. The addition of the sauces give these potatoes a little extra flavor.

Makes 4 servings


    Extra virgin olive oil                          
    4 to 6 potatoes medium                                        
    Salt or seasoned salt of your choice                          
    Black pepper Freshly ground
    1-2 Tbsp.  Worcestershire sauce
    1-2 Tbsp. Soy Sauce
Preheat oven to 450° F.

Scrub potatoes well, making sure there is no left over grit. With a paring knife, peel skins off the potatoes, about 1/8 -inch thick. Place potato pieces in a large bowl. With your hands toss and coat both sides with olive oil, Worcestershire and soy sauce. Place on cookie sheet/baking pan skin side up. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until crisp and golden. Serve immediately in a napkin-lined basket. You may opt to sprinkle with salt and pepper once skins are removed from oven and are still hot.

Tip: Sprinkle the potato skins with Parmesan before placing in oven for another great flavor.
