Every time I take out my potato peeler I say “what a waste.”
Today is cold and I wanted soup so I decided to make my Moms sausage soup that I blogged years ago.
You have to peel six potatoes but this time I peeled them with a knife and saved the peels.
I put three tablespoons of oil in a frying pan and threw the potatoes in.
Season them with salt pepper and about 1/4 teaspoon onion powder.
Cook on medium high heat and don’t move them till the underside is brown
Turn them over and put into a hot 450 degree oven for another 15 to 20 minutes.
Top with salsa, cheese, scallions, olives, jalapeños or sour cream.
Serve with or before your soup.
Give yourself ten dollars for making potato skins nachos.
I love making two meals at once.
I will also do this with my sweet potatoes.
