Yummy Stuffed Baked Potatoes Recipes And Useful Tips About It!


  • Stuffed potatoes are almost completely baked, a lid is cut off or the potato is halved horizontally, most of the flesh scooped out, mashed and then mixed with the filling.
  • The filling is then returned to the shell and the potato is baked again either with or without the lid.
  • Always take care not to puncture the skin and try to do the scooping and filling quickly so that the skin doesn't have a chance to go baggy.
  • Stuffed baked potatoes are marvelously versatile and can be served as an appetizer, as a complementary side dish, as a complete light meal or with a crisp salad.
  • They are exceptionally useful vehicles for using up leftovers.
  • A meal composed of 4 or 5 potato skins stuffed with different fillings is particularly popular with children.
