Double Done Potatoes
Made Famous By: Heather McMullin
I have to many cook books than I ought to have.
I can't help it I love them all.
You never know what will inspire you to create something amazing from one day to the next.
I think by the time I am 80 I will need a whole room to store my cook books.
Honey this is a warning!
One day my kids went over to my cook books and took a few out.
It made my heart happy!!
My biggest boy was looking through one and would not rest until I made these
Double Done Potatoes. He even wrote it on a piece of paper, decorated it, and stuck
it on the fridge. This boy knows what he wants and doesn't rest until he gets it.
He is this way with everything he does or wants. Always has been and I love it.
Reminds me of his Dad. Those of you who know both can attest to this.
Double Done Potatoes
4 baked potatoes
2 C Cooked Broccoli
1/2-1 C Sour Cream
Salt and Pepper to taste
Butter to taste
1 C Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Chopped Green Onions
1. Set the oven to Broil. Cut the baked potato in half lengthwise.
**If you don't have baked potatoes handy. Just wash, dry and lightly oil a raw potato, and then cook it in a microwave for about 6-10 minutes. My 4 potatoes took about 12 minutes.**
2. Use a spoon to scoop the potato's insides into the bowl. Put the empty potato skins upside down on a baking sheet, and broil them for 7 minutes to make them crispy.
3. While the skins are crisping, cook the broccoli until the broccoli is bright green.
4. Add the sour cream and butter to the potato innards, and mash with the fork. (crumbled bacon or scallions-or both- make a tasty addition to the filling.) Add salt, pepper, and butter to taste. Stir well.
5. Use your potholders to remove the skins from the oven and turn them right side-up. Spoon the filling into the skins. Sprinkle the cheese on top. Then broil for 7 minutes, or until cheese melts and the filling is hot. When the cheese is melted top with the broccoli.
6. If you burn your tongue on the amazing food you've cooked, you won't be able to taste it. So make sure your Double Done Potatoes are cook enough to eat before you dig in!!
