Twice Baked Potatoes

De.Ma.Cuisine's picture
I served the potatoes with some German sausage, a Simple Tomato Salad, and some Roasted Broccoli. They would also be great alongside a Roast Chicken, Roast Beef, Pork Chops… Or as the main event: You could cook, then mix in some ground meat, or tempeh, and serve it with a simple salad on the side. If you made Chili this week, it would be amazing over top of the potatoes! And, here’s an idea: If you have leftover filling, you could make it into potato pancakes, or a hash with scrambled eggs.
