Grandma Potatoes.

Alright, welcome to the first CULINARY post of in Nobody Likes November.
This is my great grandmas recipe for twice baked potatoes, hungarian style.
It's really really easy and takes maybe 15 minutes tops.
I don't have any pictures of her recipe, so until I get one, I took this image from another fellow blogger.
Please forgive me, John.

Twice Baked Potatoes (aka Grandma Potatoes)

recipe serves 2


One Large Russet Potato
Salt and Pepper
Old Bay Seasoning
Parmesan Cheese

1. Microwave the potato on HIGH for five minutes.
2. Take the potato out. IT WILL BE HOT. You just microwaved it. Use common sense. Cut it in half and scoop out enough potato from the middle that the skin just barely manages to hold together on its own.
3. Put the inside of both halves of the potato in a bowl. Pour in enough milk and butter to make it nice and creamy. you want it to be like mashed potatoes.
4. Pour in loads of old bay so the mashed potatoes are tinted orange. If you don't have Old Bay, sucks for you. Use paprika, but it won't really be the same. add salt and pepper to taste.
5. Scoop half of the mashed potatoes into a skin. Make it nice and fat. Make a foil "boat" for the potato to sit in. How cute. Do the same for the other half and the other shell. Snap a picture, they're just too darn cute.
6. sprinkle on some Parmesan and a little more delicious Old Bay on top of each potato. This will make them deliciouser.
7. Pop them into the toaster oven/real oven (one one of those tray things) and broil them until they're crispy on top. Take them out. Note how there's a hint of crispy and before your fork dives into a pool of fluffy creamy mashed potatoes. Yum yum.
8. (optional) Snap another picture before diving in. They're just too darling.
9. Tell me how you like them. Post the pictures from steps 5 and 8 and post them in a comment to this blog. Yay!

Oh yeah, and share them with your buddies.

forever yours, November on
