You know those deep-fried potato skins stuffed with bacon, cheese, and sour cream? They may be
chain-restaurant staples, but boy, are they addictive! These baked potato “coins” are a healthier,
low-FODMAP take on those not-so-good-for-you snacks. And they’re much easier to make. If you’re
a fan of twice-baked potatoes—or anything involving crisp potatoes and cheese, for that matter—
you’re sure to love them as much as I do.
