Vegan MoFo 2012, Carbstrong: Potato Skins and Homefries

Ok, so it turns out that when I clean out my fridge, it's not always to the healthiest result.

Behold: the most perishable contents of my fridge on this particularly busy weekday.  Half a bag of cheddar Daiya, a few baked potatoes (both leftover from the scramble), some Tofutti sour cream, chopped red onion, and jalapeño.

What else is a girl to do?  I halved the potatoes and tried to scoop the center out with my favorite scooper.  Either because the potatoes were cold from the fridge or under-baked, it wasn't working so well.

However, I quickly learned that it was working better than a grapefruit knife, which I promptly managed to cut myself with.  Back to the scooper!

Once the bleeding stopped (kidding!) and the skins were scooped, I filled them with onions, cheddar, more onions, and jalapeño.

I baked them at 375 degrees for 30 minutes on a lightly greased cookie sheet, and served them with sour cream.

And what did I do with the scooped potato?  Home fries, of course: potatoes, butter, onions, s/p.

With black pepper ketchup.

Ah, potatoes.

Speaking of, isn't this the cutest potato scrubber you ever did see?


  1. Well, I love potatoes. Potatoes with potatoes for dinner works for me. Maybe a little salad on the side.

  2. Carb strong!

    Also... I have the same potato brush!


Have you got something to say? It would be so nice to hear from you!
