February is National Potato month. Well, we couldn't let this special month pass without a bang! Here's a wonderful way to add some sparkle into your spuds! (Thanks to my friend Sage Elmer for turning me on to this delicious way to prepare and cook a potato!)
1--medium to large sized Russet or baking potato
1-TBL grated cheese mix (cheddar, pepper-jack, mozzerella, Swiss etc)
1-TBL chopped crisp bacon pieces or your favorite type of sliced meat
1-TBL chopped green or white onions
Any other ingredients you wish to add---black or green olives, etc.
3-6 slices of bacon per potato
Using an apple corer, remove the center meat of the potatoes.
Save the cores.
Stuff the potatoes with your favorite deli meats, cheeses or anything you desire.
Insert plugs on each end to seal.
Wrap each potato with with bacon and then foil.
Bake @ 350F indirect for an hour, or until done
