My almost meatless dinner.


Potatoes for dinner

Does dinner also have to include a big chunk of meat? No, especially if you haven’t gone grocery shopping, are just feeling lazy or don’t have a lot of time.

This is the best recipe for a quick and filling meal with items you probably have in your fridge right now. It’s basiclly a loaded potato which really folks doesn’t always need to be next to a steak or piece of chicken. Loaded to the proportions it is a complete meal filled with dairy, veggies and yes meat (see the yummy bacon on there).

Loaded Potato Dinner

You’ll need

  • 4 large Idaho potatoes
  • 1 cup of green onions/scallions
  • 1 cup (or more) shredded cheddar or colby cheese
  • 1 cup of sour cream
  • 2 cups of broccoli
  • 4 strips of bacon
  1. Boil the potatoes till soft and tender. Remove a bit less than half cutting lengthwise. Scoop a bit of the potato flesh out so you have a small indent to place the rest of your ingredients.
  2. Bake your bacon on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper at 350º for 20 minutes till crisp.
  3. Sprinkle each potato with about 2 tablespoons of the cheese then top with the broccoli evenly dividing  them to each potato. Sprinkle with a bit more cheese and bake them for about 10 mins at 350º degrees.
  4. Now everything’s out of the oven and you’re ready to dress your spuds. Crumble half of each bacon strip and add to each potato. Add a generous spoonful of sour cream to each. Top with chopped scallions and the other half of each bacon strip.

Dinner is served.
