I had to do it again. My oven is my favourite cooking appliance. This time I wanted to use the potatoes I had laying in the kitchen. So I searched for baked potatoes and found a blog with 5 different stuffed potato recipes. I didn’t have all the ingredients I needed so I just improvized.
I don’t think they could have turned out much better. If you are a potato lover then you will like these. Or if you just want to eat something filling but fresh either by themselves or with a meat dish, then by all means, try these.
- 9 medium potatoes
- 3/4 cup grated mozzarella cheese (75 grams)
- 1/4 green onion. finely chopped
- 1 small clove garlic, finely chopped
- 8 strip bacon, fried
- 1/2 cup yoghurt
- 1 table spoon garlic chives, chopped
- salt and pepper, to taste
- Set oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Wash and dry potatoes.
- Coat in vegetable oil and lay on a pan covered with baking paper.
- Poke holes in potatoes to release steam as they bake. Bake potatoes for 1 hour or till ready. (I cooked mine for 70 minutes to be sure they were soft.)
- While the potatoes are baking chop and mix the other ingredients leaving out half the bacon and garlic chives for garnish.
- Cut off 1/4 inch from the potato tops. Scoop out the inside living about 1/4 inch of potato along the skin.
- Mash the potato and add it to the mixture. Fill the potatoes with the mixture. Then garnish with bacon and garlic chives.
These looked beautiful and as I brought them to the table my family was impressed. Little decorations go a long way and add an extra flare to the meal.
The stuffed potatoes were a little dry, according to our taste buds, so we just added a creamy yoghurt dressing. They were then set to go. We ate them with a special Danish meat sausage called medisterpølse and of course a salad. We eat salad at every meal – it is a family tradition.
Well, happy potato stuffing. Please write if you try any other stuffing and tell us how it turned out.
I’ll be back Friday with a desert . Catch you then
