A food post

I was inordinately impressed with the way these turned out, so I had to take a picture of them. ;)  Hey, it's my blog! 

This is a Kristie concoction.  Here's how I did it in case you're interested:

Twice Baked Potatoes

First I baked the potatoes.  After they cooled a little, I sliced them and scooped out the insides.  In my mixer, I combined 1/2 stick softened margarine, a couple big spoonfuls of sour cream, about 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese and some cooked bacon.  I seasoned the mixture with chives, black pepper, salt, onion powder, and red pepper flakes. I brushed the potato skins with olive oil and put them facedown on a baking sheet.  Baked them in 400 degree oven for five minutes maybe.  Then I scooped the potato mixture into the skins, sprinkled cheddar and mozzarella cheeses over the top.  Then I sprinkled dry bread crumbs and more chives.  Next, I baked them on a baking sheet for 15 minutes at 400 degrees.  Yum-ola!  I have bible study tonight and will miss eating them.  Hope Eric saves some for me.

They look amazing! Do your kids eat stuff like this? Mine wouldn't. But my husband and I would... ;-)

Drew wouldn't, but Blake would eat the inside part, not the skins. Eric and I have put a good dent in them.

Looks delicious! I may have to "steal" the recipe this weekend when I have "more time" to cook.
