Stuffed and Baked Potatoes
Since baked potatoes were born in Wendy's I couldn't help but feel sad with the little amount of toppings. Now where is justice there? Can i just say bitin at tipid?
Then came my goal to make my own simple baked potatoes with oozing cheese and lots of bacon bits to die for.
I wanted to submit this recipe to Eden Cheese's Sarap ng Buhay event as a contribution but failed due to laziness. Sorry! Next year nalang! Anyways, I am still happy that my pizza made it there! Yey!
On the photo I used:
3 medium sized potatoes
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp minced garlic
1/4 cup Cheez Whiz
1/4 cup All Purpose Cream
about 1/4 cup of milk
1/4 cup Grated Eden Melt Sarap, and some extra for topping (optional)
about 100 grams fried bacon bits (drain the oil!)
Because I would rather go the faster way, I boiled the potatoes for about 15-20 minutes until they're tender. Then after waiting a few minutes for it to cool, slice the top horizontally, scrape off the remaining potato meat then set aside. For the bigger potato slice, scoop out about 2 tbsp as if you are making a potato bowl. The scraped and mashed potatoes will be added to the cheese stuffing later on.
While boiling the potatoes, save time by making your cheese stuffing:
In a small saucepan, melt the butter then add the minced garlic, cheez whiz, cream, milk and grated cheese. Allow to simmer then set aside. Add the mashed potatoes and mix well
and then put about 2 tbps of cheese stuffing on the potato or until full.
Top with extra grated cheese if you want, then the bacon bits, then bake it in your toaster for only 10 minutes or until cheese melts
Now I wouldn't have to be sad with other baked potatoes :)
I started this blog because of other great bloggers and realized that it also came through as a therapy (well, until now it still is).
I was dreaming to reach a hundred entries this December, obviously I didn't. Maybe I will, when I reach my first birthday here! So wish me luck!
My making up for lost times with my blog still led to another moment of making up for lost time. What on earth happened to the last 33 days? P-L-E-N-T-Y.
Anyway, it's the holiday season! It's time to cram!
Until my next "making up for lost time"!
In case I don't get back sooner --- Merry Christmas and a Happy 2010 to you all!:)
