Super Bowl party treats: cheesy potato skins

Is Peyton Manning unbeatable? While that may seem to be the case this year, people need to remember Denver is not going into the Super Bowl undefeated.

That being said, it does not mean it will be an easy task. Manning was only sacked 2.7% of the time (18 out of 677 times), the fewest in the league, by far. Additionally, he was hit just 42 times, also the lowest in the league. No wonder Manning set so many passing records this season.

The Seahawks would do well to review the film from Week 15’s Chargers vs Broncos game, which the Chargers won 27 – 20 and that of the Broncos 39 – 33 loss to the Indiana Colts. More importantly, according to Rich Gannon, an NFL analyst on CBS (and former NFL quarterback), any team that plays against Manning must adjust its overall mental approach.

“You have to go in with a different mindset that you’re not going to shut him down,” Gannon says. “Go in with the mindset that you can hold him to 20 or 23 points. Try to beat him 27 – 20 or 28 – 23. That’s your best shot.”

Another mindset that is a bit different on Super Bowl Sunday is what you’ll eat. If there are lots of great things to eat wherever you view the game, don’t overindulge. You will, however, want to eat one of these tasty cheesy potato skins.


  • 5 large russet potatoes
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Scrub the potatoes.
  3. With a paring knife, remove skin and about 1/8 inch of the flesh in long 1- to 2-inch-wide strips. (Reserve peeled potatoes for another use.)
  4. Toss potato skins with oil, paprika, salt and cayenne.
  5. Place in single layer on a lightly oiled baking sheet; sprinkle with Parmesan.
  6. Bake until tender and golden, 25 to 30 minutes.
