I do eat it but only if it is crispy and very clean. :)

I won't if I'm ordering from a restaurant, because I'm not really sure if they scrubbed the outside or not, but otherwise I always eat the skin!

I have to add a bit of salt to it (sea salt is best) but yes oh yes I love those baked potato skins!

I didn't realize people don't eat the skin. I season it with my own seasoned salt mix and it is ohmygoodness delicious!

I thought I was alone in loving the skins. I bake my potatoes in the microwave and then finish them in a hot oven or under the broiler to crisp the skins. No one else in my family will eat them so sometimes I find myself serving the kids scraped out baked potatoes and eating their potato skin as my dinner.

Oh heck yes I do! I love the skin. And regular baked potatoes are great but I love baked sweet potatoes most of all!

The skin is the best part of the potato! It's where all the nutrients are and it gives you a lot of fiber. Sometimes when I make twice-baked potatoes, I make some extra ones and I hollow them out and eat just the hollowed-out skins...yummy!!

That's the best part! I don't know why -- I just like the flavor and texture.

I started off eating the skin on new potatoes in crawfish boils, moved onto eating them in mashed potatoes and potato salad. On my baked potatoes I will generally eat the skin if I spice up the potato with paprika, onion and garlic powder, and red/white/black pepper. Yummy! Now I want potatoes tonight.

I love mashed potatoes with the skins in them!! On baked potatoes, I would probably just add a touch of butter and salt to them before I ate.

I like the skin of the potato a lot better than what's inside of it. I'm not really a potato person.
