Crispy Potato Skins

  • 4 medium-sized potatoes (for baking) washed and scrubbed
  • Pritikin® All-Purpose Seasoning* or mix your own (below)
  • canola oil cooking spray

Homemade Seasoning Mix

  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder salt-free
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons oregano
  • 2 teaspoons corriander
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons lemon pepper salt-free


  • Preheat oven to 450°F.
  • If not using Pritikin All-Purpose Seasoning, prepare Homemade Seasoning Mix and set aside.
  • Slice each potato into quarters lengthwise. Holding knife parallel to cutting board, remove most of flesh from skin, leaving about ¼-inch of flesh.
  • Place potato skins in large saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to boil and cook until softened, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove skins from water and drain well.
  • Lightly mist nonstick baking pan with canola oil cooking spray.
  • Place potatoes in a single layer, flesh side up, on baking pan. Sprinkle potato skins with seasoning mixture.
  • Roast potato skins in oven until crisp and golden, 30 to 45 minutes.


Enjoy these very healthy Crispy Potato Skins alone, or dip them in fat-free sour cream, low-sodium salsa, or your favorite Pritikin salad dressing.
