Pimento Cheese Potato Skins makes a great appetizer recipe. This southern spread was made to be on a potato. I love this mash up appetizer! I deal with a lot of hungry people everyday. It really is amazing how hunger effects people. Even me. These skin will curb that hunger so you aren’t a total monster up until dinner time (Trust me. I know).
It’s so funny to me when I serve a table and walk away like: “Jeez! What’s their problem (usually followed by some profanity…It’s the restaurant business after-all) Rude…” Then it’s like magic. I bring them their food. They eat. And they are the sweetest people ever, and leave me an awesome tip. Then I feel bad because I was wrong about them as people. They were just hungry and grumpy. Like I get…
Me and my sister use to fight a lot. My mom always said it was like magic after dinner. We would laugh and laugh over the silliest things. All I am saying is if you are rude to me (your server) because you are starving. It’s okay. I know the signs now, and I forgive you. Now go eat these potato skins!
