Whip up these potato skin snackers just in time to root on your favorite team or to simply treat yourself! We’ve made our own wing sauce that’s not too hot and cooled it down even more with our own effortless blue cheese dressing. Be sure to use unsalted butter in this recipe to keep the salt levels in balance. Use those leftovers and combine the extra potato with sour cream for some deliciously tangy mashed potatoes.
