Cheddar Stuffed Potatoes

Recipe for Cheddar Stuffed Potatoes | www.andersonandgrant.com


I get tired of eating the same baked potatoes, french fries, and mashed potatoes with every meal.  Sometimes I'm looking for something a little different.  These stuffed potatoes aren't much more work than a traditional baked potato, but the taste is AMAZING!  Plus, you can easily change the flavor a little by substituting a different cheese or using some different spices.

Because I don't use ricotta cheese often, I like to make these potatoes whenever I make lasagna rolls because it uses up the leftover ricotta.  I hate buying containers of ingredients for a recipe and then throwing half of the container away!

Another bonus with this recipe is that you can prepare them the day before so that all you need to do for supper is heat them in the oven for about 20 minutes at 350 degrees.

So, here's what you'll need to do to make the stuffed potatoes....


Cut the tops off of potatoes, scoop out the insides, and fill with potato mixture for delicious stuffed potatoes | www.andersonandgrant.com



CHEDDAR STUFFED POTATOES

INGREDIENTS
4 large Russet potatoes
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup ricotta cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Bake the potatoes at 400 degrees for one hour.....Or, if you are like me and don't figure out what you want for supper until you need it in a half hour, you can bake the potatoes in the microwave for about eight minutes.  However you bake your potatoes, they need to be soft, but not cooked so long that the outside skin begins to shrivel.

Remove the potatoes from the oven and slice the top portion of the potato off the top.  Scoop the insides out into a bowl and mash with a fork.  Combine the potato with the other ingredients.  Spoon the mixture back into the potato skins.  Top with a little extra cheese and some bacon bits if you'd like.  Place the potatoes back into a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes to warm them and melt the cheese.

 While this recipe is for four potatoes, you can easily adapt it to make one or two if that is all you need.  You can also cut each potato in half, rather than cutting just the top off,  to make a smaller portion....Then you can fill each half with the potato mixture.
