Cooking is such a pleasure when you know that the food you put down is going to be munched up in minutes. Who does not want their food to be a great ‘hit’ with their family and friends. Preparing food however, can be tireless as the job is never-ending and needs to be repeated. I have a few pieces that I keep as my trusted, true, and easy in order to just make in a pinch. I bet you have those recipes too right? This particular recipe is easy to prepare, works well for tailgating, home-gating, parties, happy hour and as a dinner with sides served!
I have bypassed posting cutting and scrubbing a potato because I am sure you know how to get to that point! Now, you have to cut, scrub and then half the potatoes, and toss them in a large mixing bowl. The recipe below will finish this up and you can see what they turn out like! Yum!
This recipe is perfect for both vegetarians and meat eaters. When I prepare this food, I eat it without any toppings, I actually slice tomatoes up and place it with the cheesy potatoes, while my family eats these with meats or as meals and they stack it up with bacon and all the fixings. I think of this like a Nacho Platter, but with a little more substance. My boys love this meal because they are getting ‘junk’ but I know they are eating healthy, home-cooked food.
These are the topping that my family uses.
You can add more, switch them up or eliminate them completely. I love this recipe because it is baked, not fried, and I do not remove ANY of the insides of the potatoes, unlike the restaurants that scoop out the middles. The meal is inexpensive and easy to prepare. While these bake I do about 300 other mini tasks and before you know it, dinner is on the table. Enjoy this recipe from In The Kitchen With Dana!
