Greek Potato Skins

You can do most of this recipe ahead, have your skins ready and baked the first 5 minute baking and have your cheese mixture ready and in the fridge. Continue on to the last steps just before serving. These go over well with sports fans, however I think you'll want to make more than 32!

3 medium potatoes, scrubbed
olive oil
4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
1 1/2 teaspoons oregano
1/2 teaspoon basil
1/4 teaspoon rosemary
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt

1. Heat oven 400f, prick the potatoes and bake 1 hour or until done.
2. Cool potatoes slightly, cut in half, lengthwise and scoop out the pulp leaving a 1/4" shell (reserve pulp for another use) Cut skins in half lengthwise again and then cut in half crosswise (you'll have 32 pieces) Brush skins generously with with oil.
3. Bake 5 minutes.
4. Combine the remaining ingredients and top the skins with the cheese mixture.
5. Drizzle with a little oil and broil for 2-3 minutes until cheese is bubbly.
