  9. *Variation for simple potato skins: after you scoop the potato out, brush with melted butter and place skin up on baking sheet; brush skins with butter and sprinkle with garlic salt; broil in oven until browned and butter bubbly; flip over and broil until golden brown; add cheese and cheese will melt while cooling down to eat/serve – SUPER great served with Habanero Sour Cream
