Baked Papas (Potato) Skins


  • 8 baking (russet) potatoes, scrubbed and pat dry
  • Olive oil, to brush on potato skins
  • Sweet paprika, to sprinkle on potato skins
  • Salt (coarse preferred)
  • Sour cream, for topping


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  2. Prick the potatoes a few times with a fork and bake them in the middle of the oven for 1 hour.
  3. Let the potatoes cool, halve them lengthwise, and scoop them out, leaving a ¼-inch shell; reserve the potato pulp for another use.
  4. Cut each shell lengthwise into 6 strips and arrange the strips on a baking sheet.
  5. Brush the strips with the oil, sprinkle them with paprika, salt, and pepper, to taste, and bake them again at the same temperature for 20 to 25 more minutes, or until they are crisp and golden brown.
  6. Serve the potato skins with the sour cream.
Serves 6.
