The other evening, I wanted to make twice baked potatoes for a side dish. I had everything needed, but when I pulled out my potatoes, they didn't look very nice anymore. The dish sounded so good though, so I improvised.
Salt and Pepper
Peel and cut potatoes. Cook in boiling water until soft. Drain the water, and mash the potatoes. Add sour cream until the potatoes have more of a mashed potatoes consistency. Taste test to make sure you have enough for flavor. Then add crumbled bacon and shredded cheese (you can also add sliced olives). Add salt and pepper to taste. Mix together and heat on low to allow the cheese to melt and the flavors to blend.
These were quicker and easier than twice baked potatoes. They had all the flavor, and made good use of some less than pretty potatoes.
We're a bunch of rednecks up here in Central Washington, just waiting for our own reality show. There are twin 4 year old hurricanes that are always into something. An 8 year old with a Minecraft obsession and ADHD. And an 11 year old drama queen that has already started in musical theater. Us adults work full time and try to make ends meet. We are loud, we are wild, and often inappropriate. Hey, it's just another day at the Kihn's.
