I know this is supposed to be a techie blog, but I have to eat too. So what is becoming a Thanksgiving tradition for me is the preparation of Texas Twice-Baked potatoes. They are delicious, with lots of flavor and spice, which I think adds a little flair to what I think can be a bit bland holiday meal.
The ingredients I use are as follows. I will not give amounts, but you can see how much I used and make yours based on your taste preferences.
- Russet potatoes
- Grated sharp cheddar cheese
- Chopped pickled jalapenos
- Cooked and chopped Bacon
- Minced fresh garlic cloves
- Cream or milk
- Salt & Pepper
Add what you want - green onions are good in these, but I did not have any.
So - bake potatoes as normally done. Cut in half. Scoop out potato, place in bowl and mash a bit and add butter, cream/milk and mix. Then add ingredients (use 1/2 the cheese), stuff potatoes, and top with the remaining cheese. Bake until golden brown.
