My husband calls this the epitome of Thriftyfun recipes. When you peel your potatoes, don't throw out the skins. Instead, make this super easy, super yummy appetizer. It only takes a few ingredients. As a bonus, potato skins contain all the best health benefits, packed with B vitamins, vitamin C, potassium and calcium. Score!

Total Time: 25 minutes


  • leftover potato peels
  • 1 tsp oil
  • salt, pepper (any seasonings you like)
  • 1 Tbsp Parmesan cheese
  • chives (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. I use my toaster oven.

  3. Toss skins, oil and seasonings together and lay in a thin layer on a cookie sheet. Bake for 20 minutes. I like to broil them for a few minutes at the end to get the super crispy!
  4. Remove, sprinkle with Parmesan and optional chives. So good!

I have done this. It is delicious, and a lot of the nutrients are in the skin.

It is. I just used them to top a casserole instead of bread crumbs. Was very good. :)
