|BBQ Stuffed Potato|
Ingredients for Loaded BBQ Baked Potatoes:
2 giant baking potatoes scrubbed and wrapped in foil
2 T. butter
1 C. grated cheese (We like cheddar.)
2 C.warmed and shredded BBQ pork
4-6 sliced green onions
1/2 C. sour cream
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Bake the potatoes 1-1 1/2 hours until fork tender. This will depend on how large your potatoes are. Meanwhile heat the BBQ and lower to a slow simmer and keep warm stirring occasionally.
When the potatoes are done remove them from the oven and with a potholder in your hand roll them a bit on a heatproof surface using a little pressure to break up the starch. Next split the foil open and slice open the potato but do not cut all the way through the lower skin. Using a tea towel over the top of the potato to protect your hand squeeze the ends gently towards the center until the flesh puffs open.
Now you are ready to stuff! Start with a generous sprinkling of salt and pepper and place half of the butter in the center of each potato. Next place 1/4th of the shredded cheese, 1/2 of the sour cream, and 1/2 of the pork in each potato. Top with the rest of the shredded cheese and the green onions.
There you have it a meal in its self. Enjoy. Serves 2. I serve with a fruit salad for dessert.
