Super Stuffed Potatoes

Cooking With Kids
From Kid Food: Rachael Ray’s Top 30 30-Minute Meals

Sometimes it’s hard to get kids to eat foods other than peanut butter and jelly and chicken nuggets but Rachael Ray increases the children’s repertoire of foods to include eggplant, succotash, and lots of yummy green plants in Kid Food: Rachael Ray’s Top 30 30-Minute Meals. Here’s how to make her recipe for Super Stuffed Potatoes.

You Will Need:
4 slices center-cut bacon, chopped
2 all-purpose potatoes, such as russet
1/2 cup regular or reduced-fat sour cream
2 scallions, finely chopped
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 cup shredded cheddar, Colby, or smoked cheddar cheese

What to Do:

In a small nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, brown bacon pieces, then drain on paper towel.

Pierce potatoes a few times each with a fork. Microwave on high for 12 minutes. Let potatoes cool a few minutes before handling.

Preheat broiler.

Carefully split potatoes and scoop out flesh into a small bowl. Combine with sour cream, scallions, salt, pepper, and cheese. Scoop back into the potato skins and place under broiler to lightly brown the tops and serve, allowing 1/2 potato per person.
