Classic Potato Skins recipe

I'm a carb junkie...and there is no denying it. So when I we browsing my Pinterest boards for dinner ideas and realized I had TEN recipes pinned for Potato Skins, I knew it was time to take action.
No, not the kind that results in a reality check and a new diet plan.
I made dinner. 

What You'll Need: (Makes 12 skins)
3 Medium/Large sized potatoes
Cheese (shredded)
Toppings (optional), Sour Cream, Bacon Bits

How to do it:
1. Scrub the potatoes, patting dry when you're done. Then, after melting your butter in a small cup, brush your potatoes with butter. Add salt as desired, poke holes in the potato, cover in aluminium foil and bake at 400 degrees until cooked (about 45 minutes).
2. Once your potatoes are cooked, unwrap, and cut in half or fourths. Scoop out all of the insides of the potatoes, putting them in a container for another recipe (worked great, little dude had homemade mashed potatoes!). Then, add butter to both sides and cook on broil for five minutes on both sides. 
3. Once cooked, place on a serving dish, adding toppings you'd like to melt first, like cheese or the sour cream. Serve with your choice of sauce as desired and top with all the best ingredients. Sit back and enjoy your snack!
