So after a bit of a hiatus (s0rry about that), it is time to post again. Hope you are all having a good week I think I will start off with a side dish this time (but it doesn’t have to be by any means). Here’s something simple for those of you in eskimo-esque climates. Bob inspired me as I was wanting good ‘ole steak and potatoes – so you can thank him later. However, this was simply wonderful! Our guests the past two weekends have been raving about this still!
desired amount of red potatoes (apparently these taste best)
garlic (Bob used this for his blog pictures but I went with straight bacon-cheese potatoes)
shredded cheese (I used sharp)
1. Boil your potatoes until tender.
2. Wrap your baking pan with foil. Place your potatoes and smash them until open. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Top with desired ingredients. I knew bacon was going to be a big hit so I topped each potato with a pat of butter, uncured bacon and shredded cheese.
3. Bake at 450 for 25 minutes. You can smell the magic by then. Serve with a side of sour cream – absolutely fantastic.
The first weekend I made these along with Van’s baked macaroni and cheese and steak. That was a great night Thank you both for your dinner ideas – they made me look good!
