Cheesy Potato Skins with Sun Dried Tomatoes Recipe

 

Cheesy Potato Skins with Sun Dried Tomatoes are a new take on the classic stuffed potato skins.  Fontina and Mozzarella cheeses stand in for cheddar, and sun-dried tomatoes and parsley add a fresh touch.  These stuffed potato skins are twice baked which makes them crispy and delicious.  I like to make them for football night and sometime even for the main dish at dinner.  They are the perfect finger food for your next party.
