T.G.I. Friday's Potato Skins

Looks: Apart from the cheese not spreading as judiciously as it does across the potato skins on the box, these frozen recreations could be straight out of a TGI Friday’s kitchen. 4.5 out of 5

Taste: I’ll be honest with you – I didn’t eat these. My wife was making them for a snack and I grabbed them to photograph after they came out of the oven but before she realized they were done. Sort of a potato-napping, if you will. Based on her level of displeasure at finding that her skins were missing, I’d peg their potential taste at about a 3.5. 3.5 out of 5

    I wonder if they serve these in the restaurant.

  2. jfinke says:

    These have way too much potato taste and not nearly enough cheese-and-bacon taste for my taste. Taste.

  3. Stephanie says:

    Nah OddBoyOut, they don’t serve these ones in the restaurant, they make actual (and good) potato skins for in house, this was just them trying to jump on the frozen food bandwagon.

    I don’t think I’ve actually gasped before at the difference between the box and the real thing. That is the worst-looking piece of “food” I’ve ever seen.

    May I recommend a complete lipid profile and cholesterol screening after consuming this and all above products.

    Since you have cut the half potatoes in half again all the cheese and bacon runs onto the baking sheet when baked. Will not buy this brand now. I used to buy 2-3 boxes a week.

  7. Theo says:

    Since this looks terrible, why not just chop some sausages, cook them in a pan, peel some potatoes, chop them, place both of them in a deep pan, bake at 375 until brown and eat. It looks weird, but it tastes like heaven.
