Potatoes Two Ways

Forgot to take pics on a plate.  

There’s no sugar in this post.  I know.  Y’all are wondering if you’re at the wrong blog or if I’m unwell.  😉  All’s well in rural route.  Occasionally I do bake savory and this one is a family favorite.  🙂

Shrimp Stuffed Twice Baked.  This is so easy to make.  Bake your potatoes.  Scoop out and mash.  Add butter / sour cream / cheese / ranch / bacon (any of your favorite toppings).  Mix in shrimp.  Stuff.  Bake at 350* for about 20 minutes.  Top with cheese and put back in the oven just until the cheese is good and melt-y.   I make these a lot on Friday during lent.  I know a lot of people skeeve out at the thought of cheese and seafood.  Normally I’d agree but it works here (and can always be left out if it’s not your thing).

Savory Potato Waffles.  When you make the stuffed baked potatoes you’ll always have some extra potato left over that won’t fit back into the jacket.  With the left over today I made up a small batch of waffle batter.  Left out the sugar.  And instead added 1/2 cup mashed potatoes.  Ranch in place of buttermilk.  Plus salt / pepper / garlic and onion powder to taste.

Cook like a regular waffle.  Top with cheese and broil til melt-y.

The twice baked is a definite keeper.  The waffles are not.  They were ok but nothing I’ll make again.  

****I’m editing this post add that the waffles turned out exactly like they were supposed to…like a savory waffle.  I just didn’t care for them.  I shared them because I still think they’re a great idea for something different if you like savory waffles.  It turned out I didn’t and just kept wishing they were blueberry instead.  Sorry for not wording that better.  🙂

Hope y’all are having a good week.  🙂

    • Thanks, Molly. 🙂

      I’m going to edit the post to say that I just didn’t care for them but others might. That’s actually why I shared them…incase others might be inspired to try their own. They turned out the same texture as a regular waffle. I think I just didn’t care for the savory nature of it. They sounded and looked good but when it came down to it I just wished they were blueberry. 🙂
