6 small to medium russet potatoes
Extra virgin olive oil for rubbing
3-4 tablespoons melted butter for brushing
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
Nacho toppings: Sour cream, guacamole, salsa, green onions, fresh cilantro, etc.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Thoroughly scrub the potatoes, pat them dry, and rub them all over with olive oil. Bake them for 40-60 minutes or until tender when squeezed. Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop out the pulp, leaving about a 1/4-inch thick rim of potato around the shells. (Keep the pulp for another use, such as mashed potatoes).
Brush the outside and inside of each shell with some butter and then sprinkle with some salt and freshly ground black pepper. Place the potato shells, skin side up, on a baking sheet or the rack of a broiler pan. Set the oven to broil, place the pan 3-4 inches from the heat, and broil the potatoes for about 3 minutes.
Remove the potatoes from the oven, place them skin side down on the pan and sprinkle with cheese. Return them to the oven and broil for another 2 minutes. Arrange the potato skins on heated serving dish and top with the nacho toppings of your choice.
