Pigskin (and Potato Skin) Playoffs

Four teams are just one win away from the Super Bowl. Sunday’s matchups will determine who’s going to the big dance in Dallas on February 6, and here on the FN Dish, we’re cooking up a potato skin showdown in their honor.

The New York Jewish deli classic, re-imagined as a potato skin. Load up cheesy skins with deli-sliced pastrami, Russian dressing and dill pickle slices and cheer loudly for the J-E-T-S Jets Jets Jets.

Chicago Bears: The Works Potato Skins

Pile all the classic Chicago hot dog fixins on a crisp potato skin: Sweet pickle relish, dill pickle spears, pickled peppers, yellow mustard, chopped onion and tomato, celery salt and poppy seeds.

Sure, Chicago has good hot dogs, but Wisconsin has brats! Here, three Wisconsin favorites team up on one tasty potato skin: Bratwurst, beer and cheese. It's the ultimate Green Bay bite.
