TACO POTATOES

We love tacos, but don’t always want a tortilla, so we put some bakers in the oven, make the Taco filling, chop up the toppings- onions, tomatoes, olives, sometimes avocado, then when the potatoes and filling is done, we put our favorite green salad mix on a plate, place our baker on top, open and fill it with the meat mixture, then top it with the chopped up veggies, sour cream, shredded cheese and hot sauce. This is indeed one of our favorite meals.

Parmesan Baked Potato Halves

Ingredients:

  • 6 small potatoes, scrubbed and cut in half
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • grated Parmesan cheese
  • garlic powder
  • other seasonings (to personal preference)

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Melt butter and pour into a 9×13 inch pan and spread evenly across the bottom. Generously sprinkle Parmesan cheese and lightly sprinkle other seasonings all over the butter. Place potato halves face down on the butter and seasonings. Place in preheated oven and bake for 40 to 45 minutes. Cool for at least a FULL 5 minutes before removing from the pan, otherwise the Parmesan crust won’t stick to the potato. Serve on a plate with a side of sour cream for dipping.
