Twice Baked Potatoes
Oooo... I thought of another favorite that I freeze ahead
often. Twice baked potatoes! I'll actually be making these today as the
store had a big bag of russet potatoes on sale for 1.49.
Bake potatoes in the oven. When done, split in half, scoop out the
potato leaving the skin intact. Put the potato center into a large
bowl, add butter, milk, sour cream - whatever you would like! (I also
sometimes add cooked-until-soft squash or turnips - to hide the veggies
in the potato!). Put this mixture back into the potato skins. Place in
freezer bag in meal-size portions and freeze! (you can also freeze on a
tray then pack in a freezer bag. This keeps the potatos from sticking
together when freezing and makes for easy removal).
To use: place potato halves on a tray and heat in oven until thaw or
thaw/heat in microwave. Add cheese, bbq chicken, diced veggies -
whatever you want as a topping!
