Baked potatoes don’t have to be just the potato with some butter and sour cream. You can stuff your potato, and that can take the dinner side into a good meal choice for everyone at the table.
Swap using the white potato or yellow potato, and use a beautiful orange sweet potato. Making the switch will give you increased Vitamin A, potassium, and more fiber also. The skin of the sweet potato is what gives you a good jolt of Vitamin A, so no peeling these spuds!
There are many ways to stuff a potato.
The sky’s the limit. Have you used broccoli and cheese?
You have more choices.
Try adding these ingredients to your baked potatoes.
- Ham & Egg
Add ¼ cup cubed ham and 1 fried egg, and drizzle with maple syrup for a twist. Yum!
- Apple & Turkey Bacon
This time dice ½ a medium apple and add 2 tablespoons blue cheese dressing and 2 slices turkey bacon, crumbled. Interesting!
Use 2 tablespoons of tomato sauce, 1/8 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese, and a few pepperoni pieces for some pizza fun!
- Curry & Peanuts
Try 3 tablespoons curry sauce, ¼ cup crushed peanuts, with 1 tablespoon of cilantro can make a great meal.
Be as inventive as you want with this. Imagine the possibilities and discover new tastes. Stuff those spuds up for some delicious, healthy meals for the whole family.
