« Truffle Mac & Cheese | Main | Out of This World Cauliflower »

If you have a TurboChef oven, you're going to find preparing for sporting events like today's Big Game allows for more time in front of the tube and less time cranking out snacks from the kitchen. The oven crisps up wings like they came from a deep fryer by using the Air Crisp setting. Crispy potato skins are also easy and don’t require frying either. Here's how:
Select Bake > Vegetables > Potatoes > Bakers > Quantity 4. Allow the oven to preheat. Brush your potatoes with a little olive oil, place them directly on the oven rack and hit “Start.” Four potatoes will take just 10 minutes to bake. This will give you enough time to prep any other ingredients you want to top them with later.
Quarter your potatoes (or halve them if they are smaller), and remove some of the flesh. To crisp the inside of the skins select Air Crisp > Appetizers > Unfilled > Fresh >Toasted. Place the skins on a baking sheet flesh side up while the oven is preheating. Once preheated, place the sheet in the oven and press "Start" to begin baking. It takes about two minutes.
When finished, the skins are ready to jazz up with toppings so select Toast > Cheese Melt > Count 6. Top the skins with grated Cheddar cheese, and place your baking sheet back in the TurboChef oven. Two minutes later, you're ready to garnish a perfect set of potato skins with salsa, sour cream, bacon and fresh minced chives. Touchdown!
