Loaded Baked Potatoes


Loaded Baked Potatoes
Another simple meal I make that my family loves is loaded baked potatoes.

I use medium sized potatoes, not the giant Russet bakers you'd get at a steakhouse.

Wash the potatoes, poke holes with a fork, and wrap in aluminum foil if you're using the oven, or put as is in the microwave. 

They'll take about 40-50 minutes in an oven set at 350 depending on size. (I like to throw them in with something else I am making such as bread or an apple crisp so I'm not just running the oven for 6 potatoes). 

Microwaves can vary greatly, but 4-6 minutes for one potato is a decent guide, adding approximately 2 minutes for each additional potato. 

Test their doneness by squeezing them (wearing an oven mitt). If they're tender and squishable, they should be ready. 

Meanwhile, steam frozen (or fresh) broccoli, and if you have a bunch of carnivores (i.e.- men), cook up some bacon. 

I top mine with 1 tsp. butter, 1/2 cup broccoli, 1/2 oz. shredded cheddar cheese, and 2 crumbled bacon slices. Using the my fitness pal calculator, it runs about 300 calories, with 33 carbs, 14 fat, 14 protein, 15 calcium, and 13 iron. You can adjust it to what your body needs by using turkey bacon, or using different toppings.

Come back next Tuesday for another great recipe!
