Ok, so she didn’t really blog about my potatoes, but she did briefly mention that she made a variation of them recently.
I love when people make my food. I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that part of the reason why I have a blog where I (occasionally) post recipes is to stroke my own ego every once and a while. What? You totally do it, too.
But another benefit of hearing people tell me that they made one of my recipes is that it reminds me of all of the recipes that I love and forget to repeat. Those potatoes were filling, delicious and cheap.
They fit my life motto! This blog is nothing if not filling, delicious and cheap!
Anyway, thanks to SIL, I decided to have another go-round with the twice baked potato.
This time, I spiced them up a bit.
Hot (Wing) Potato
1 shallot, sliced
1 chicken sausage, sliced into rounds
1/4 cup broccoli florets
1 t olive oil
1 medium baking potato
2-3 T hot wing sauce (I used Frank’s buffalo sauce)
1 oz shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided
1. Thoroughly wash potato, poke a few holes in it, and microwave it for about 6 minutes, until fork tender. Or you could bake it, but who has the time?
2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat and add chicken sausage. Once it begins to brown, add shallots and broccoli and saute until veggies are tender.
3. Cut a slit across the top of the potato and scoop most of the inside into a bowl. Mix with cheese and wing sauce.
4. Combine veggie/sausage mixture with the potato mixture and stuff back into the potato shell.
5. Top with additional cheese if desired and bake at 400° until completely heated through.
I’m not going to say that this is guilt free, but it’s better than polishing off 20 hot wings by yourself.
Not that I’ve done that.
