Tasty Potato Skins

1/2 cup feta cheese

1 Tbsp garlic powder

2 tsp fresh basil

2 tsp fresh rosemary

3 Tbsp olive oil

3 medium baking potatoes, with skin Directions:

Wash 3 baking potatoes, poke with fork and rub olive oil on them, bake for 1 hour until done
When potatoes are done, wait 5-10 minutes for them to be cool to touch, once cooled, cut the potatoes lenthwise in half and scoop out most of the insides, leaving about 1/4 inch (save scooped potato to make potato salad), you should now have 6 halves lengthwise
Cut each half lengthwise again, leaving 12 long skins then cut each skin in half in the other direction, leaving you with 24 individual potato skins
Coat a sheet pan with cooking spray, brush each skin with just a little bit of olive oil and bake skins @ 350 degrees F (177 degrees Celcius) just enough to make the skins firm
Remove from oven, add garlic powder, rosemary & basil to the skins and bake another 3 minutes @ same temperature
Turn oven off, remove skins, drizzle with more oil then sprinkle feta cheese on skins and place in warm oven just to let the cheese melt and turn bubbly

2 parsnips
2 medium yellow onions
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
1 tsp baking powder
1 egg
2 egg whites
Salt to taste
Freshly ground black pepper
2 Tbsp vegetable oil or nonstick cooking spray

2. Peel the potatoes, parsnips and onions and coarsely grate
them in a food processor fitted with a shredding disk, or on
a box grater. Grab handfuls of the grated vegetables and
squeeze tightly between your fingers to wring out as much
liquid as possible.

in the breadcrumbs, baking powder, egg, egg whites, salt
and pepper.

them with nonstick spray. Spoon small mounds of the potato

the pancakes in the oven until golden brown on one side
(about 6 to 8 minutes), turn them over with a spatula and
brown the other side (about 4 to 5 minutes).

5. Transfer to plates or a platter and serve immediately
with sour cream and applesauce.
