Mini Potato Skins
These potato skins are so tender when they are first cooked in your Instant Pot® and then finished off in the oven. The smaller red potatoes used here are perfect for bite-sized appetizers for your partygoers to enjoy. Because of the petite size, these skins are an easy bite and seem a little less guilty than a larger potato skin, which will make your guests more likely to indulge!
