Garlicky and Cheesy Crispy Potato Skins topped with a delicious mixture of potatoes, three cheeses, sour cream, crushed croutons and green onions.
Okay. I’m probably pushing the limits here. Can we just get it out of the way? I know. I posted a potato recipe about 10 minutes ago. I know. BUT, potatoes are in, maaaaayon. They’re the it thing this season. And, they were on sale.
Three 5-lb. bags for 4$. Cha-ching! Now that I wrote that, I feel bad for the potato farmer…
But then I went to Target and spent 20 times more than I saved at the grocery store a few minutes earlier. Meh.
You know. I can seriously live on appetizers. One of the best things about end-of-football-season is … that it’s almost over ;-), and the next best thing is all the love and creativity we pour into the appetizers that we will serve on the last game-day. What’s better is that we can load up on the carbs that day and it’s actually ay-okay! It’s like a calorie-free night! Well, it is in my book.
If there’s one thing that I’m craving during this crazy-freezing polar vortex, (besides lots of wine), it is starchy, carby, load-me-up food. This Loaded Baked Potato Casserole made it to the dinner table thrice in 2 weeks. And my recipe for Macedonian Moussaka was last night’s dinner. With a large side of Feta Cheese Pastry. OH my YUM!
I’m thinking soup and salad should be dinner for the next 10 days. Should … key word.
I’m not sure if I can fully convey just how much I love these potatoes! They’re crispy. Like, real crispy! Baking them 3 times will do that. Adding croutons in the mixture will also add to the crunch. I wasn’t sure what cheese to go with so I added all three… buhlieve me, noone ever complains about “too much cheese”. Never. And noone.
I swear (just a little) I’ll give you a break on the potato recipes after this.
P.S. DA BEARS!!
P.S.S. At least the Cheeseheads aren’t heading to the Super Bowl, either! 😉
